“While much learning can occur within the walls of a classroom, there are unique, powerful lessons to be gained from participating in a Winter Term abroad. I was fortunate to lead students in a study of English sport culture. What better way to understand the psyche of a football fan than by attending a Premier League match? What better way to experience rugby culture than training with a British rugby club?” – Kristin Flora, associate professor of psychology
“Franklin’s Model UN class offers students the opportunity to diplomatically interact with people from around the world in an intensive week of global political negotiation in New York City. Throughout this experience, students get the opportunity to try their hand at “politicking” and to learn the art of diplomacy, which we tie throughout the experience to capitols, courtrooms, and boardrooms everywhere. In 2015 our venerable team of eight delegates received two Outstanding Position Paper awards and the top team recognition by the Conference, Outstanding Delegation.” – Randall Smith, associate professor of political science
