Globally connecting through InterCultural Experiences—ICE
A transformational distinctive at Crown College
As the professional world grows ever more globalized, Crown students gain valuable skills by learning and working with people from different cultures and with different values all around the world. Through Crown’s InterCulture Experience (ICE) trips, students experience transformative learning and growth by serving the spiritual and physical needs of men, women, and children in every part of the world.
ICE trips are a highlight of the year for Crown students. Crown’s international networks deliver opportunities for our students to “go” and learn, experientially, on these short-term missions opportunities. In fact, more than 50% of our graduates will participate in at least one ICE trip during their time at Crown.
