Each global rotation city presents new opportunities to work on a range of societal issues, from government, art, and culture to science, technology, and commerce. In collaboration with local partners, impact projects allow you to build upon — and inform — your formal studies by helping contribute to these important efforts.

This episode of our Global Immersion series highlights four students in the Class of 2019 and their experiential project-based learning in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
