“I met Professor Brian Butler in July 2009. Brian is an enthusiastic promoter of international experiences, because he traveled around the world many times, he is aware of different cultures and is able to tell you stories and interesting facts about many countries, languages and customs. He keeps a close relationship with the students, and is very responsible and maintains a professional posture.”
- Karina Fensterseifer, Feevale University, Brazil
“I first met Professor Michael Tyler in June 2012. Mike is the perfect professor to travel with because of his expertise in both teaching and the international environment. He truly understands the importance of emerging into the culture of the host country while also thoroughly learning the subject matter being studied. His years of experience abroad have led to numerous stories and a deep understanding of various countries, as well as their respective cultures. Mike also continues to maintain the close relationship he established with the students in our program. I highly value his professionalism and his willingness to remain as an advisor while I continue my studies and travel." - Ernest Holtzheimer, Rowan University, NJ USA
