The Brown University Office of International Programs has launched two new Distinctively Brown programs in South America. Both programs are run by theConsortium for Advanced Studies Abroad (CASA)—a non-profit consortium of nine leading United States research universities, delivering rigorous education abroad programs in collaboration with leading world universities—with Harvard University as the administering institution.
The Brown in Argentina/CASA Program will partner with four universities in Buenos Aires: Universidad de Buenos Aires (UBA), Universidad Torcuato Di Tella, Universidad de San Andrés, and Universidad Nacional de las Artes. The first class of students will sudy abroad in the Fall 2016 semester.
The Brown in Chile/CASA Program will partner with four universities in Chile: Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC), Universidad Diego Portales, Universidad de Chile (UCH), and Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez (UAI). This program will also begin in the Fall 2016 semester.
These additions to Distinctively Brown programs in Latin America reflect rapidly expanding interest in studying abroad in the region. In the Fall 2015 semester, a record 29 students participated in the Brown in Cuba program. Check out this Brown University newspiece about the changing nature of US-Cuba university exchange.
