A Trek to the World's Southernmost City

The Global Fellows Program aims to open substantive dialogue on issues of sustainability and geopolitics from a global perspective.

Buena Vista University’s Global Fellows spent Interim near the southernmost city in the world, Puerto Williams, Chile, reexamining how the world treats its ecosystem and making global environmental connections.

As part of the trip, the group of students trekked the Dientes de Navarino mountain range, studied freshwater ecology in the Robalo River, and toured the port city of Valparaíso.

Global Fellows are selected based on faculty recommendation letters and globalization-themed essay responses during their first year at BVU.
