This unique experiential learning program provides students with the opportunity to engage with global issues through learning, interacting, and volunteering with local Ugandan and Rwandan organizations and experts. The customized 2-week international component, which includes 10 days in Uganda and 3 days in Rwanda, is premised on core educational themes that are covered both in-classroom at home and while abroad.
The 4 central themes of the Engage East-Africa program include:
1. Poverty and Public Health
2. Education and Sport
3. Social Entrepreneurship
4. Conflict and Reconciliation
Each theme is covered by an academic unit and through program days dedicated to exploring these topics in a local context. While in Uganda and Rwanda, the classroom is brought to several truly diverse and immersive settings - from the National Genocide Memorial in Kigali, Rwanda to a rural school in southwestern Uganda.
