Today that reach extends further than ever. Our Centers in Beijing and Paris are intellectual destinations bringing together researchers and students to collaborate across the academic spectrum. College students and faculty travel the globe together through our Study Abroad programs. And UChicago alumni are making a difference in more than 125 countries, in their careers and through volunteer work.
