Welcome to SPAN

SPAN, the Student Project for Amity among Nations, is Minnesota’s longest-running research and travel abroad program. SPAN offers undergraduates from all Minnesota colleges and universities an opportunity to conduct independent research on a self-chosen topic, while immersing themselves in a culture different from their own.

Summer 2022: London, England

SPAN will be sending student researchers to London, England in the summer of 2022! Unfortunately, the summer 2021 trip to London, England was cancelled by Hamline University’s partner institution, the University of Roehampton, where students will be housed during their time in London.  This was due to concerns relating to the global pandemic.  We will begin recruitment for summer 2022 in full at the start of the fall semester. Learn more about previous student experiences here.

For Students: Travel to London, England, in 2022. Find out what SPAN entails and how to apply for this unique program.

For Alumni: Reconnect with travel mates; meet the newest generation of student researchers. Volunteer and share your SPAN story.
