Although exchange programs have existed at various times throughout Baylor’s history, the current program, headed by social studies instructor Heather Biebel, has grown to include relationships with 10 schools in seven countries over the last three years.
Students from the exchange partner schools have enjoyed attending classes at Baylor and living in Chattanooga – some with host families and others as boarding students.
“The Baylor Exchange Program is another facet of Baylor’s shift in the curriculum, allowing students to explore the world through hands-on experience,” says Biebel.
