Spelman College Partners With Webster University to Provide Study Abroad Opportunities for Students

Historically Black Spelman College in Atlanta is the newest addition to Webster University’s WINS Program. The WINS Program creates partnerships between Webster University and U.S. colleges and universities to provide access to Webster’s international campuses on four continents. The program allows full-time, degree-seeking students of affiliated U.S. educational institutions to study abroad at one of Webster’s international campus locations and allows for collaboration program development amongst partner institutions.

Spelman College has an extensive study abroad program that sends students to more than 40 countries in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Europe, and Latin America. Christa Sanders, a Spelman alumna and Webster Ghana director visited her alma mater and sparked interest among administrators in the WINS program.

This spring, Sanders and WINS director Kim McGrath will visit the Spelman campus to promote the program to students, faculty, and staff.
