At Nichols, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to expand your intellectual and cultural experiences beyond the classroom. Through the Robert C. Fischer Policy and Cultural Institute, we bring you events, lectures and study opportunities that provide experiential learning.
Through the Nichols College Cultural Enrichment Program, you’ll hear prominent speakers on campus discussing topics ranging from international affairs and politics to interpersonal relationships and cultural diversity. Be sure to keep an eye on the calendar for performing and fine arts events featuring renowned musicians, poets, artists and dancers, too.
The Institute is also responsible for arranging Washington, D.C., internships and managing the College’s European study abroad programs. As a Nichols student, your opportunities are global – from the national and international politics of the Beltway to the lively culture of Europe’s most vibrant cities.
On campus and off, the Fischer Institute delivers programs that are connected to your coursework and provide context to the political, social and cultural experiences you’ll encounter throughout your life.
