“As an international student in Boston coming from Venezuela, I could have never imagined having an opportunity like this. This will have a tremendous impact in my next years as an architecture student.”

"This program was amazing. There was a constant flow of passionate energy within the studio as well as with the faculty and staff which was appreciable!"

 "My favorite part was the exposure to new technology and the collaboration with students from different schools."

Vance, Howard University, Barcelona, spring 2014

Spelman College Students Prepare to Spend Two Weeks Abroad this May


In May, just over 100 Spelman College students will pack their passports and travel to Peru, Ghana, the Dominican Republic, or Portugal, for two weeks of intercultural learning with a custom program that includes Spelman faculty and CIEE staff members. CIEE is proud of our special partnership with Atlanta-based Spelman, and the opportunity it provides to these students to build the skills they’ll need in today’s global community.

In each location, students will immerse themselves into their host countries’ cultures through co-curricular activities with faculty and locals. A custom intercultural engagement curriculum taught by CIEE staff will also build intercultural competencies and leadership skills. Read more.
