K-Term is a week long experiential project-based period at the end of spring trimester. Students and faculty will leave the classroom behind and venture out, both near and far, to put into practice the fundamental skills that they have been developing all year. The faculty has designed projects that are collaborative, that require critical thinking and problem solving skills, and that ask students to communicate their new understanding.
All Off-Campus Projects will travel to locations further afield here in the US or overseas. Some of these projects will return to campus by the end of K-Term. Longer trips will extend into summer vacation by some amount of time, and the scheduled return dates are listed in the descriptions.
All project trip fees include the price of transportation, accommodations, food, and activities. Students may want some ‘walking around money’ for personal items or souvenirs. We have worked to create credible budgets for these experiences; however, all prices are subject to change based on number of students and final booking prices. Some financial aid funds may be available. Some of these projects count for the Global Scholars Program. The GSP points are listed with each trip.
