2020 Global Studies Trip - Leuven Belgium

Graduate and Adult Professional Studies Global Programs

As the daily confirmed cases of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) rise within our country and within Europe, we have considered the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff and have decided to cancel the planned School of Graduate and Professional Studies (SGPS) August global study trip to Leuven Belgium. Please note that our Global Studies Program will continue, so please stay tuned for announcements regarding study abroad trips in the future.

Thank you very much.

Kindest Regards,

Cathie Coleman-Dickson
