Center for Global Education Announces Potential Trip for Summer 2022

By Alla Daniel ~ Guest Writer

For summer 2022 the University of Lynchburg will be offering international study abroad trips for the first time in two years due to COVID-19. 

Iceland will be one of the many trips that the University is offering to students.

Professor of International Relations and Political Science, Dr. Marek Payerhin said, “Every student in just about every major is likely to find something of interest there.”

Payerhin continued, “If you are the adventurous type, we will be traveling all around the Island, literally, with many stops along the way but that’s the plan for now.”

 Payerhin will be the lead faculty member taking students to Iceland. 

Students will have the opportunity to learn about climate change on the environment, society, and politics of Iceland.

Director of the Center for Global Education, Declan Pratt said, “Hopefully we can do it, and hopefully we can make it affordable.” 

Pratt continued, “My other key focus is I want to increase the number of students that are traveling, not only because of COVID but in general, I want to make sure that a wider diversity of students have access to international travel.”

According to an email sent to all University undergraduates, “The program includes two courses: INTL/POLI 377 Polar Politics, taught by Dr. Marek Payerhin and ENVS 377 Climate Change and Water Resources, taught by Dr. Thomas Shahady.”
