Global Service-Learning

Global Service-Learning is a form of experiential education that combines immersion in a global context, service, academic learning, and ongoing reflection while meeting a relevant community-identified need. Develop your intercultural competence while interacting with the local community during this robust, transformational, and dynamic global experience.
