"I try to bring as much of the world as I can into the classroom, but there is no substitute for actually being there," says Politics & History Professor, Dr. Grant Burrier. Dr. Burrier, whose expertise is Central and South American culture, oversees the Cuban Politics and Culture Study Tour, which allows students to experience Cuba up close.
