Faculty Testimonial

"Working with GEO has given me the extraordinary opportunity of traveling around Europe and South America with some of the best students at the University of Oregon. Studying journalism across cultures and languages with them has invigorated my conviction that learning abroad helps teach perhaps the most important lesson of all: We are all one."

Peter Laufer, UO Professor of Journalism
