Transformation over Transaction

PLC believes that students must leave their immediate and comfortable surroundings to grow as a leader. Students should/must travel abroad to see and experience the human and global condition that is unlike their own. In these international contexts, students often have transformational experiences that spur personal, professional and leadership growth. Such profound growth is not available on our campus or in our classrooms where the learning and leading is a transaction between instructor and student. Therefore, we encourage and support all PLC students who want to pursue global experiences during their undergraduate careers. Below is a small list of global experiences that we offer and/or support as endeavors that will deliver the transformative, rather than transactional, learning.
