Study Abroad with Leadership Studies
As part of our mission, "Developing knowledgeable, ethical, caring, inclusive leaders for a diverse and changing world," K-State's Staley School of Leadership Studies believes it's important for students to experience different parts of the world. That is why we offer several options for students to serve and study abroad.
Connecting Across Topics (CAT) Communities
Study Abroad CAT Communities provide a dynamic, global learning experience for K-State students at the start of their college experience. Like our other CAT Communities, a small group of students take a group of academic classes together, but they also have the chance to travel abroad together during their first year. The class culminates in a spring break trip to a new destination each year. The Spring 2020 destination is Puebla, Mexico!
International Service Teams
International Service Teams is a service-learning program of interdisciplinary teams of Kansas State University students. Teams travel and live in communities around the world during the summer break. Teams work with community partners to engage in local community work abroad. Previous projects have focused on health, education, environmental and sustainability concerns, and youth development. Applications are due in the fall of each year.
