Passport to the World Program enables the college to embark on year-long explorations of the culture and history of a particular region or country. The program engages our community in crucial global conversations through public lectures, cultural events, coursework and travel opportunities. After past programs with South Africa, China and Russia A&S is shifting its focus to Mexico for the 2013-2014 academic year with Viva Mexico!
