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, the Student Project for Amity among Nations, will be sending undergraduate researchers to London, England in the summer of 2022. With planning well underway to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, London will be ground zero for the festivities this summer. While in London during June and early July, SPANners, as they are called, will be based at the University of Roehampton. Unfortunately, during the summers of 2020 and 2021, SPAN researchers could not travel to London due to concerns relating to the global pandemic. Recruitment for summer in London 2022 is currently underway.  Learn more about the experiences enjoyed by previous SPANners here.
