The SIT study abroad programme seeks to enhance world learning. Its mission is to prepare students to be inter-culturally effective as leaders, professionals, and citizens. By this, SIT fosters a worldwide network of individuals and organizations committed to responsible global citizenship. SIT fulfills this mission with field-based academic study abroad programs for undergraduates and accredited master’s degrees and certificate programs for graduates and professionals.

The main aim of their visit was to study the Ghanaian culture and also identify with the CU experience. According to one of the students, they were of the hope that their presence at CU would further instill a greater vision to expand their lives greater than just Ghana to the other parts of the world.
