Educating Global Citizens

Learning in the World Programs: Important Update

Due to the global effects of the COVID-19 outbreak and the travel advisories issued by both the Centers for Disease Control and U.S. Department of State, all off-campus, Learning in the World programs scheduled for the 2019-20 school year have been cancelled. These cancellations include both domestic and international, faculty-led and affiliate partner programs.

We remain committed to the ideals of global education and the values of Learning in the World programming. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and look forward to offering Learning in the World programs and other global citizenship opportunities as soon as it is safe and prudent to do so.

For any questions related to Learning in the World programming, please contact Carmen Muñoz-Fernández.

LITW lets students choose from a range of structured, experiential learning opportunities that enrich their on-campus studies. Andover students are encouraged to explore our current offerings and to apply to participate in an opportunity in the United States or in another region of the world.

Students may also request to be part of our Global Ambassadors Program. We select a group of diverse, dedicated, and enthusiastic LITW alumni to serve as “ambassadors” (or representatives), not only of the program in which they were part of, but also of all the LITW programs. A Global Ambassador promotes the concept of global citizenship and the importance of civic responsibility, empathy, and engagement beyond our cultural and national borders. Interested students may contact Carmen Muñoz Fernandez.


Throughout the year, there are a variety of avenues for faculty members to contribute to, participate in, and lead programs. If you are interested in participating in or leading a LITW program, please contact Carmen Muñoz Fernandez.


Partnerships represent a core element of LITW programming, as thoughtful collaboration inspires the development of individual programs. Around the globe, those affiliated with schools, businesses, social enterprises, non-governmental organizations, and public entities provide insight into the content of LITW programming, participate in and lead community discussions, and enhance the overall experience for students and faculty.
