Global Engagement & Travel

Buena Vista University is committed to promoting global awareness to our students through academic programs and travel opportunities.

Students in Rapa Nui

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.

Study Travel

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.

Sharing Culture

On campus, our international student community and their friends sponsor activities to share their cultures with their fellow students.

Global Citizenship

Our University Seminar program introduces students to global issues and concerns, promoting awareness of global citizenship and intercultural understanding.


Global Fellows

An 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.
