Billy Greer Announces Semester Abroad Initiative
09-04-2012During his annual State of the College Address, President Billy Greer announced that Virginia Wesleyan will launch an initiative this fall that will expand opportunities for students to enroll in semester abroad immersion programs. This new three-year pilot program is focused on increasing study abroad experiences for students and strengthening the on-campus infrastructure required to support them. The project will continue through the 2014-15 academic year, providing resources for at least thirty-eight students to study abroad for a semester. Study abroad experiences provide students and the Virginia Wesleyan community with increased cultural insight and understanding, expand students’ academic and intellectual pursuits and enrich their lives by connecting them to a global community.
