Learn Leadership

A Global Focus




Our Mission

The Pavlis Institute exists to inspire and prepare Michigan Technological University students to become  global leaders who challenge themselves, work effectively on diverse teams, and achieve their goals through life-changing courses, projects, mentorships, and international experience.

The Pavlis Impact

The international experience is an experience like no other. Follow the story of Jessica, a Pavlis graduate who traveled to Ghana. Pavlis helped inspire her to enter the Peace Corps. The video to the right is part of her video blog she’s doing as a part of the program. Listen to her thoughts of the Pavlis program and what you can expect if you’re thinking of applying.


Check it out! Pavlis students made the following video promoting the institute. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!


Be a part of something incredible. If your passion is traveling the world or you’re just interested in improving it- the Pavlis Institute is for you.
