June 26 - July 29, 2017
Apply by: March 31, 2017
This engaging and interactive summer study abroad program combines classroom instruction with high profile guest lectures, visits and excursions, as well as practical training elements in the area of goal finding, human rights, mediation, dispute resolution, social responsibility/peace building, and intercultural negotiation skills to prepare students for their future careers goals to become leaders in a globalized world. Students are meant to be co-creators of this summer program, not consumers.
The instructors and guest speakers who will lead the program are the facilitators of student growth, not the providers of it.
Throughout the program, students will be motivated to step up and lead, question, engage, grow, commit, create community, and continue to develop as the unfolding leaders they would like to become. Attending class, being prepared and completing readings and assignments, and actively participating in class discussions and activities are not only expected, but essential for every student’s individual success and growth through participation in this program.
