International Study Tours
UCO encourages each student to develop a global perspective. The relationship between leadership capacity and a thorough international perspective is well documented. Each spring break, the Leadership Office plans a 3 hour study tour for students pursuing the leadership minor or for upper division credit. These study tours balance an understanding of the local culture and history while also combining service learning through local service projects and initiatives.
During the Spring of 2013, UCO Students traveled to Peru to experience Machhu Picchu while also volunteering at local orphanges and after school programs. During the Spring of 2014, UCO students traveled to Port Elizabeth, South Africa to work on education and sports projects while experiencing the beauty of the southern tip of Africa.
