Learning beyond borders

HECUA has a forty-four year history of taking students out of the classroom and into partnerships with communities in the US and around the world.  Our core work is the operation of experiential off-campus and study abroad programs focusing on justice, social change, and imaginative approaches to difficult problems. Each program aims to prepare students to act effectively in the world and achieve a community of purpose with others. Through meaningful internships and hands-on learning in a curriculum that responds to change in real time, students put their passions to work and sharpen the skills they need for advanced study, employment, and engagement in their communities and in the world.
