Since 2013, more than 250 SHL students alone have compared and contrasted tourism issues and tourist attractions with their global counterparts. Daily live videoconference discussions, chats, and collaborative student projects provide personal international experiences that open student perspectives about other cultures and build the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to thrive in a global multicultural society.

Course professor Dr. Cynthia Deale and course students recently partnered with the first of three planned institutions for the semester. The first partners were students and faculty from the Dominican Republic. Dr. Deale coordinated the course activities with Mr. Danny Capellan, visiting student coordinator | Dean of International and Interinstitutional Affairs, Iberoamerican University (UNIBE),
