The UT Global Initiative for Education and Leadership (UTGI) at The University of Texas at Austin collaborated with the International Office (IO) in the fall of 2014 to offer the U.S. Academic & Culture Immersion Program for Visiting Students from China in connection with the Severn Institute. The program offers high-performing students from China an opportunity to experience an American university. Participants take academic English and leadership courses, participate in cultural experiences, and volunteer in community service projects. Half the cohort take coursework along a humanities/business track, and half a sciences track.
The academic sessions offer a sampling of American academic courses at the university level. UTGI has selected talented faculty to create short courses based on the content from their classes.
