Affiliation with WINS to Expand Study Abroad Opportunities

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. – Gardner-Webb University has formally affiliated with Webster University by joining the Webster International Network of Schools (WINS) consortium.

Joining the growing consortium of 35 affiliates allows Gardner-Webb to expand its study-abroad opportunities. Students may now study at any of Webster University’s International campuses in locations including Vienna, Thailand, Beijing, and Accra.

Currently, about 100 Gardner-Webb students participate annually in international experiences in countries such as England, Hong Kong, Costa Rica, Italy, Germany, Russia, Switzerland, Greece, and Strasbourg. WINS will provide six additional study abroad locations for students and give college credits to any student who spends a semester or summer session overseas.

“We hope this new affiliation will open up opportunities for GWU students to spend a semester or go to summer school in different countries overseas,” said Dr. Helen Tichenor, director of International Programs. “There is a lot of interest, and I am looking forward to working with our students, Webster University and our partners overseas.”

As a part of the WINS affiliation, Gardner-Webb will also host foreign students who wish to study abroad in America.
