Stonehill students know the value of global citizenship and immerse themselves in it through research, coursework and service on nearly every continent on Earth.
We know there’s more to life and learning than what exists within the walls of our campus. That’s why we encourage our students to seize every opportunity to go out and find knowledge at its source.
