Arcadia University has long been known for its global education program, which results in more than 80 percent of its students studying abroad at some point - one of the highest percentages of any school in the country.
Now, that distinction has been extended. The university's 34-member board of trustees voted at their meeting this month to study abroad, too, at some point over the next three years.
They will participate in one of the university's seven- to nine-day "preview" courses for freshmen and entering transfer students.
The first group leaves this weekend for one of three destinations: Cuba, Mexico, and Ireland. The seven trustees have taken preparation classes with students at the Glenside campus since the semester started and studied the course materials.
