Buena Vista University brings the world to our students, and our students to the world. With our travel and global engagement experiences you will graduate as a well-informed, culturally competent and confident person.
During January Interim and other times of the year, we sponsor domestic and international study trips. Financial support is available to assist students with these experiences.
On campus, our international student community and their friends sponsor activities to share their cultures with their fellow students.
Our University Seminar program introduces students to global issues and concerns, promoting awareness of global citizenship and intercultural understanding.
A fully-funded, interdisciplinary international experience
In the Global Fellows Program, BVU students study sustainability and geopolitics from a global perspective. Selected through a competitive process, they spend January near the southernmost city in the world, Puerto Williams, Chile, examining how the world treats its ecosystem.
