Students will actively collaborate with in-country experts on community-based field experiences that include partnerships with a refugee camp, regional health center, area schools and more.

  • Learn about the cultures, politics and development in rural Rwanda
  • Develop an understanding and practice of cultural humility
  • Engage in community engagement projects to support local development initiatives
  • Nurture and sustain longstanding international partnerships
  • Apply learning for positive social change
