Sustainable Development in Africa: Study Abroad in Uganda - May to June 2018

Instructors: Debra Bishop, Jimmy Senteza, Glenn McKnight, Thomas Root

HONR 067

This three-week travel seminar focuses on human rights, democracy, entrepreneurship, education, tourism, health care and business practices through the lens of a Drake study trip to Uganda. Dr. Jimmy Senteza, one of the lead professors for the trip, grew up in Uganda, and has used his connections there to create a course which exposes students to life-changing learning experiences in a developing country. Dr. Glenn McKnight, another lead professor for this course, completed part of his doctoral dissertation in Uganda, and has bridged connections with the Makerere Institute of Social Research, giving students on this trip opportunities to interact with influential figures in Ugandan government.  Students on the trip also do work with a school for children with special needs, meet with business professionals, go on a safari tour, and take a tour of rural agriculture.
