Each year, CIAS Honors students have the opportunity to participate in a Spring (or Winter) Leadership trip. Traditionally these trips have taken one of two forms: an international trip devoted to culture, art history, architecture, and how it is influenced by history and geography., or a domestic trip devoted to alumni outreach and professional development.

Students take a large role in planning the trip, from determining a destination to plotting out tours, museum visits, alumni dinners, professional networking, and more.

Every year students work to fundraise the money that will go towards their trip, and any remaining costs are paid by the students themselves.

    Past International Trips:

  • Spain
  • Eastern Europe
  • Germany and Italy
  • England, Scotland, and Ireland
