Co-sponsors: ACPA Commission for Global Dimensions in Student Development and the Institute for Shipboard Education (Semester at Sea)
ACPA is proud to sponsor a unique globalization program in collaboration with the Institute for Shipboard Education/Semester at Sea. The trip consists of both travel and structured learning activities focused on globalization in addition to optional field programs. The trip is intended to provide a rich interdisciplinary learning environment with specific sessions focused on internationalization and globalization topics in higher education. Topics discussed might include:
If you are looking for a truly unique travel and learn opportunity, Enrichment Voyages are for you. Open to participants of all ages, we invite you to experience the history, culture, and arts of destinations such as Central America and the Caribbean as well as the Amazon River Basin with subject matter experts on the state-of-the-art Semester at Sea floating campus, the MV Explorer. Learn more about our enrichment sessions, service visits, and see what a typical day at sea is like.
The ACPA International Study Tour will be on the ship with several other groups. This allows for great conversations and learning. Once a day our participants will gather to discuss topics specific to student affairs, high education and globalization. A “trip leader” with extensive knowledge on the topic of student affairs and globalization will coordinate the experience for our participants. An agenda and suggested readings for the voyage will be sent to all participants prior to the voyage.

Cabin assignments and roommate matching are conducted by the organizers. Field program activities are available at every port for additional costs. Children are welcome to join for an additional fee.
