Interior or Newman Exploration Center in Olin Library

The Newman Exploration Center is a vibrant and dynamic space in the John M. Olin Library that showcases Washington University’s broad and varied international activities undertaken by our students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

Throughout the year the center hosts a variety of events designed to inspire further exploration, engagement, and participation in discovery through travel. The Newman Exploration Center also provides resources related to international and national study, research, travel, and cultures to help campus community members create their own physical and intellectual journeys.
