This is Dr. Van Vleck's HI 208 & HI 209 website. It's the locale for all manner of information, downloads, and resources pertinent to my HI 209 and 208 classes, as well as links that have nothing to do with academia. Drop in frequently. As the Buddha noted, everything is constantly changing.

Global Perspectives Certificate
The goal of the Global Perspectives Certificate is to recognize students for their international studies and activities, and to encourage students to continue their global interests both overseas and within the United States. All undergraduate degree-seeking students and all majors are welcome, including undergraduate international students.
The certificate allows students to document academic, professional, and extra-curricular international involvement for future scholarship opportunities, employers, and graduate schools. Upon completion, students will receive an official certificate and a notation on their transcript documenting their global experiences during their studies.
