Exploration Term Study-Travel Session
Parents of students who are traveling during the 2014 Exploration Term are invited to attend this session.  Dr. Katy Leonard, Director of Exploration Term and Contract Learning, will lead a Q&A to answer any general questions parents may have about student travel during the term.  Many of the faculty leading travel projects will also be available for specific questions directly following this Q&A.

These project leaders will be present: Megan Gibbons and Barbara Domcekova (Exploring the Galapagos Islands); Michael McInturff (Exploring Classical and Renaissance Italy); Jim Neel (A Tale of Two Cities: London and Paris); David Smith (After Apartheid: South Africa); Janie Spencer (European Culture and Global Media: London, Berlin, Venice, Istanbul, and St. Petersburg); Amelia Spencer and Kristin Harper (Service-Learning in Ghana).
