Embarking on his third experiential learning course in Sweden, Dr. Jeremy Stringer, SDA Program Director, set out in August 2011 with his graduate student group on a 10-day journey that included stops in Stockholm and Uppsala. The course, Comparative Education and Social Policy, gave students a chance to learn about social justice, examine one of the oldest and leading higher education institutions in the world, and discover the secrets to Sweden's successful Western economy.

Dr. Jeremy Stringer, pictured here in China, was selected to be the Dean of Students onboard the MV Explorer, a floating campus for more than 670 students, faculty, and staff that circumnavigated the globe for 113 days during Semester at Sea in the fall of 2010. While he witnessed a bull fight, walked along the Great Wall, broke fast with the locals on the final day of Ramadan, kissed a fish while crossing the equator, and hunted for the "Big Five" in South Africa, it was the compassion of the students, the humbleness of Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and the expressions of humanity that made this journey of a lifetime one of discovery and hope. Read more about Dr. Stringer's once-in-a-lifetime experience.
