Experience a Wider World

Puget Sound offers many opportunities to experience the wider world beyond the university. For some students this entails service to local communities via campus organizations like the Race and Pedagogy Institute or the Freedom Education Project Puget Sound. Other students gain a global perspective by participating in one of the university's many study abroad programs.
