International Ventures are strategic projects organized by The King’s
College that enable students and faculty to grapple with critical issues in
foreign countries. These trips focus on engaging three key facets: ideas,
institutions and people of influence.
International Ventures are idea-guided. Students see how ideas studied
in the classroom directly influence policies and cultures overseas. Team members
explore the hot-button issues unique to each country and serve as a voice for
liberty and universal principles. Students learn to diplomatically communicate
their worldview and the essence of The King’s College curriculum.
International Ventures introduce students to the strategic institutions
in foreign nations—both public and private. Teams interact with think-tanks and
universities through forums, presentations and cultural exchanges. Students
visit key government and commercial centers to explore the role they play in
shaping the world today.
The heart of International Ventures is interacting with societal
influencers—the current and future leaders of a nation. Team members meet
national leaders and build bridges with top university students. Through
idea-centered exchanges, King’s students build meaningful friendships and have
opportunities to discuss the underlying principles that shape current news
Participants in International Ventures trips cross more than international
borders. They learn to cross cultural, language and worldview borders. Teams put
feet to the mission of The King’s College by engaging leaders of other nations.
