This summer, Rosemont College renewed its support of study abroad for non-traditional adult learners as a group of 27 students, faculty, and staff members from the business programs of the Schools of Graduate and Professional Studies departed for London on Friday, July 26. The itinerary is both educational and cultural, with visits scheduled to the Bank of England and GlaxoSmithKline, a guest lecture by a member of the Institute of Business Ethics, and a trip to see Macbeth at the reconstructed Globe Theatre.
“This constitutes a wonderful opportunity to include a global dimension in the learning experiences of non-traditional students, and we appreciate those who worked so diligently to make this possible,” said Provost Christopher Dougherty.
Francis “Brig” Bowe, Director of SGPS Business Programs, provided administrative leadership for the initiative in collaboration with SGPS Dean Dennis Dougherty. In addition, SGPS facilitators and Rosemont alumnae Cathie Coleman-Dixon '00 SGPS, Bea Majka '00 SGPS, and Lois Reynolds '00 SGPS worked with Bowe at every stage to develop the curriculum for the program, and are accompanying the group on the trip. Masai Shakong, Coordinator of Experiential Learning, provided expertise for the many logistics related to the details of the trip.
We wish our alumnae, students, faculty, staff studying in London and other destinations this summer safe travels, and take pride in the Rosemont community’s continued global reach!
