Global Learning at the University of Arizona
Cultural & Inclusive Experiential Learning Opportunities (CIELO)
CIELO integrates travel, multicultural education, and service learning to empower students with knowledge and skill sets to utilize as they continue their careers at UArizona and beyond. CIELO provides a valuable holistic student experience in the form of short-term trips both domestic and abroad. Themes of interdisciplinary learning through civic engagement, cultural immersion, environmental justice, and social equity are explored through CIELO programming.
Study abroad is when a student pursues their academic goals in a foreign country. Studying overseas helps students explore cultures, life experiences, and worldviews different from their own that foster cross-cultural learning. It’s a fully immersive experience that has the power to transform a person’s global perspective, cultural understanding, and even way of life.
