After two academically successful but under-enrolled Semester at Sea short-term (Maymester) voyages, the Institute for Shipboard Education, in consultation with the University of Virginia, has decided to discontinue its short-term voyages beginning with the May 2013 offering.
‚ÄúAlthough difficult, this decision will enable the Institute to realign its resources behind the core Semester at Sea¬†fall, spring, and summer academic voyages,‚Äù said President Les McCabe.
As alternatives, prospective participants are encouraged to consider the upcoming 2013 summer or fall voyages. Financial aid is still available and a transfer package has been developed.
