Spanning across three diverse locations, our Ecology & Conservation Study Abroad Program invites students to explore the complex relationship between Kenya’s indigenous communities, land, water and wildlife. Students will leave this 4 week program with heightened cross-cultural responsiveness, an awareness of their responsibility as global citizens, and the ability to think critically to solve real problems in our complex and changing world. This program will provide students with an understanding of historical and current threats to biodiversity in East Africa, expose participants to regenerative practices, and equip participants with field-based skills to observe and apply practical solutions to the needs of specific target groups.
