Our mission hopes for our students to be ‘a blessing for themselves and others,’ and those called to careers in international affairs will find that developing their skills at IWP will build on what they’ve received at BAC in a host of ways.”
-Dr. David William, Belmont Abbey College’s Vice Provost for Academic Affairs and Dean of Faculty
