Aspires to create educational expeditions totally congruent with the level of excellence at your school. We treat travel as teaching and learning in the best classrooms possible and expect educational outcomes which are nothing less than what you do so well on campus.
Ever since Chill created what became the largest interdisciplinary major at the University of Pennsylvania, BBB – Biological Basis of Behavior, he has been focused on maximizing interdisciplinary leaning through experiential opportunities. Everything we do is interdisciplinary and intermodality – mind, body, spirit! This makes a big difference in outcome.
