50th anniversary

BCSP celebrated 50 years of study abroad in Bologna, Italy, on May 27 & 28, 2016. This direct enrollment program was founded in 1965 by Indiana University Professor Emeritus Mark Musa, a renowned Dante scholar, who established the consortium’s first bilateral exchange agreement with the University of Bologna.  Since then more than 1,600 alumni have learned Italian and memorably passed through the portici of via Zamboni.
