Several departmental faculty members have participated in SATA (Study Away Teach Away), in which they've designed an appropriate curriculum and taken groups of students to Tanzania, India, Greece and Rome. Professor Julie Rivkin conducted a SATA Rome 2006, Cultural Crossings: Henry James and Others in Italy. Professor Janet Gezari accompanied several English majors on SATA India in Fall 2008.
