IHP offers global comparative study abroad programs that provide students with a unique opportunity to examine a timely topic across four contrasting country contexts.
Undergraduate students analyze and compare critical global issues and challenges under an overarching theme related to the environment and social justice. All programs begin in the US and travel to three subsequent countries.
The current IHP portfolio has six programs:
- IHP Cities in the 21st Century: People, Planning, and Politics (view program)
- IHP Climate Change: The Politics of Land, Water, and Energy Justice (view program)
- IHP Health and Community: Globalization, Culture, and Care (view Track 1; view Track 2)
- IHP Human Rights: Movements, Power, and Resistance (view program)
- IHP Food Systems: Agriculture, Sustainability and Justice (view program)
- IHP International Relations: Global Governance, Human Security, and Civil Society (view program) New, launching Fall 2020
All of these programs are searching for Traveling Faculty who will accompany the student group to four countries (beginning in the United States). They are responsible for facilitating collaborative and interdisciplinary learning and teaching (or co-teaching) two courses.

These programs are also searching for Trustees Fellows.
