"Gettysburg College has earned its strong academic reputation. Since its founding in 1832, the College has upheld a rigorous commitment to the liberal arts in all their breadth and depth. . .There are no bystanders here. Students prepare for leadership through experiential learning opportunities, an extensive career network, and countless co-curricular, service, and off-campus activities.” (About Gettysburg)
Branded as a global college that prepares students to be active leaders and participants in a changing world, Gettysburg is an ideal college for a SHE-CAN partnership. Gettysburg accepted Vuochnear Ly, a member of our first cohort of Cambodian scholars, who started her freshman year as an International Relations major in Fall 2016. We know that Gettysburg’s diverse demographic, commitment to building global leaders, and welcoming community offers the education that our emerging leaders like Vuochnear need.
Within close proximity to internships in Washington, D.C., Gettysburg is perfect for our scholars who are interested in government and diplomatic work. Located next-door to one of the most historically significant battlefields also makes it a true U.S. experience for our scholars. We look forward to seeing Gettysburg prepare and launch our scholars into impactful international careers in the years to come.
