Buena Vista University is committed to promoting global awareness to our students through academic programs and travel opportunities.
- During January Interim and other times of the year, we sponsor domestic and international study trips. Financial support is available to assist students with these experiences.
- On campus, our international student community and their friends sponsor activities to share their cultures with their fellow students.
- Speakers and other presenters provide expertise and perspective on global issues and foreign countries.
- Our University Seminar program introduces students to global issues and concerns, and our first-year common readings promote awareness of global citizenship and intercultural understanding.
- In the past several years, we have increased the number of international students on our Storm Lake campus. We have also developed partnerships with numerous institutions abroad.
Buena Vista University brings the world to our students, and to bring our students to the world, so they graduate as well-informed, culturally competent and confident people.
