January Term (J-Term for short), PLU’s month-long term between fall and spring semesters, is when many of our students take advantage of our incredible study away options in multiple places around the world. Planned and coordinated by professors and PLU’s study away center, J-Term study away class options range from Marine Biology in the Bahamas to a Political Science course on the Presidency in Washington D.C.

Check out the full article originally posted in the Trinidad and Tobago Newsday about 14 PLU students who interned with various units of the THA Division of Health, Wellness, and Social Protection!

Associate Vice President of Diversity, Justice, & Sustainability Angie Hambrick, one of the program’s facilitators, has been visiting Tobago with PLU interns for the past eight years. The partnership with the division has been in place for almost 18 years.

“I really enjoy the cultural exchange with this program. You are giving students the opportunity to understand how services and systems work here, and, in reverse, our students are learning and sharing their knowledge as well,” said Hambrick.
