David Fleshler, vice provost of international affairs, will lead a trip for Case Western Reserve University alumni and friends to Antarctica from Jan. 28 to Feb. 10. This nine-night cruise aboard an exclusively chartered, state-of-the-art, five-star ice-class vessel includes a specially designed itinerary and exclusive lectures from the onboard expedition team of expert naturalists. This team will guide excursions aboard Zodiac craft to explore the intricate ecosystems and the abundant wildlife found ashore, especially penguins and seals.
This travel opportunity is one of 20 trips to be offered by CWRU’s Siegal Lifelong Learning Program in 2020. Case Western Reserve University faculty hosts will lead the trips, traveling with participants and giving lectures on the areas of their expertise.
Other trips include one to Morocco led by Arnold Hirshon, vice provost and university librarian, and a Budapest Getaway led by Marc Buchner, associate dean at the School of Engineering.
