The Global Perspective Program 

2004 Heiskell Award Honorable Mention: Study Abroad

Nomination submitted by: Natalie A. Mello, Director of Global Operations

Program Mission 
Worcester Polytechnic Institute provides opportunities for undergraduates to complete degree requirements off-campus under the direct supervision of WPI faculty, an experience that is unique among engineering and science universities. The impact of successfully completing professional-level projects at remote locations is that students solve real-world problems while being immersed in a different culture. With over 535 students leaving campus this year, the unique benefits of the Global Perspective Program are being recognized throughout the institution.
