The Global Experience programs provide students and HPU faculty with opportunities to be immersed in cultures unlike their own. Also known as “Maymesters,” these short-term programs link classroom instruction with intentional travel led by HPU faculty members to provide students a connection between what they are learning in the classroom with the current events and cultural legacies that they encounter abroad.
