UW Tacoma Expedition Fellows invitation
The 2013 Expedition Fellows invite the campus community to their first annual showcase event:
Costa Rica Through My Eyes
Wednesday, May 29th
12:30 - 1:30 p.m.
Jane Russell Commons
This year, Expedition Fellows traveled to Costa Rica to explore complex sustainability issues. Join us at the event to find out where Expedition Fellows will be going in 2014.
The Expedition Fellows program is a newly created opportunity for UW Tacoma freshmen and sophomores to travel to a new international or important cultural destination each year to uncover our place as citizens of a culturally diverse, global community.
Whether it’s sustainable coffee and chocolate production or balancing development and wildlife conservation, issues found in other communities around the world are similar to the ones we face here in Washington State. Our Expedition Fellows Program is one way we can explore our global connections here at UW Tacoma. - Dr. John “Buck” Banks
Coming soon: Russia Early Fall 2013
A competitive independent study program in which 3 - 4 UW Tacoma students team up with students from Moscow State University (MSU) to write, design and produce a newspaper or magazine. This is a valuable opportunity for students interested in journalism and communications and is part of a program which originated in March 2003 between UWT and MSU.

Benefits of study abroad
Studying abroad gives you the opportunity to leave the classroom and travel with faculty to a distant site to study diverse topics. If your program is offering a study abroad course, it could be an excellent opportunity to meet degree requirements while having a more diverse, in-depth experience than you could here on campus. You can visit new places, experience different cultures, broaden your perspectives and enhance your life experience while simultaneously earning credit towards your degree.
