Trojans Abroad Programs

In support of the TVS Mission of “the development of wide constructive interests” and “intelligent citizenship” and our Global Education global competency goals of Self-awareness, Empathy, Cross-cultural Communication, and Cross-cultural Understanding, each year we offer Trojans Abroad and TOE Beyond Programs.
