The Beyond the Classroom Living and Learning Program ended its operations on June 30, 2019.
Since its founding in 2001, Beyond the Classroom had prepared upper-level undergraduate students for leadership on a wide array of civic issues through timely courses on pressing social and global issues, internships with leading nonprofit organizations, and collaborative research and advocacy projects in Washington, DC, and around the world. Beyond the Classroom graduates now serve in professional positions with nonprofit, philanthropic, and international development organizations.
Please join me in thanking Dr. James Riker for his commitment and leadership in directing the program since 2006.
