Educational travel is so much more than just a sightseeing tour. True educationally focused programs are a carefully planned combination of tours, site visits and insights from expert lecturers and guides. Perhaps the most important aspect is that travelers gain new insights into their own culture, and a more global perspective—so important in today’s interconnected world. Educational travel programs offer a learning opportunity that is unique; these programs enable your alumnae/i and members to deepen their connection to your institution and organization and allows your organization to nurture your travelers’ life-long affinity with you.
