BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The University of Mary is partnering with a school in Peru on a study-abroad program.

Beginning next spring, students at the Bismarck school will have the opportunity to study in Peru and also participate in a medical mission, delivering basic health care to Ayaviri and surrounding villages in the Andes mountains.

The partnership is with Universidad Catolica San Pablo in Arequipa.

Mary President James Shea (shay) tells The Bismarck Tribune (https://bit.ly/1twbv1c ) that with the Hispanic community growing in the U.S., it seemed “almost neglectful” for the university not to have a study-abroad program in Latin America.

About half a dozen students have signed up so far.
