New study abroad opportunities

Letter to the Editor | Tuesday, November 6, 2007

Last Thursday, I was very glad to see the front page article, “Study abroad program options grow” (Nov. 1). I was disappointed, however, that three new study abroad sites were neglected. Through funding from a U.S. Department of Education grant to the Kellogg Institute, a new exchange program offers opportunities for students to attend three universities: the University of British Columbia (in Vancouver), the University of Montreal, and el Colegio de Mexico (in Mexico City). All three are participants in a program entitled “Mobility, Society, and Governance in North America.” Through this program students will get a unique opportunity to focus on the major issues currently facing the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Further information on these new opportunities can be found at http://kellogg.nd.edu/students/FIPSENA/index.shtml
