Studying abroad broadens your horizons, preparing you to work in a globalized job market and to be a citizen of the world. International and intercultural study, research, and service abroad opportunities at Misericordia University are designed and developed so that students have the opportunity to explore, grow, and shape their experiences not only as students but as citizens of the world, demonstrating the charisms of mercy, service, justice, and hospitality in the increasingly global environment in which you live.
The Office of the Vice President of Academic Affairs is responsible for coordinating study abroad for students at Misericordia University. Misericordia has a direct agreement with The Umbra Institute, (IG @umbrainstitute) an American study abroad program in Perugia, Italy. Perugia sits on a beautiful hilltop and is both a medium-sized Italian city and a big college town, with over 25,000 Italian and international students. Umbra is strong in community engagement as part of its classes as well as service and volunteer opportunities.
