Nation Building, Globalization, and Decolonizing the Mind - is an experiential program, rooted in social justice, and focused on direct community engagement. This program provides a rich context in which to explore the theme of nation-building in the context of two countries, South Africa and Namibia.
Augsburg CGEE gets you out of the classroom and into the community with travel to multiple cities, visits to museums, local groups, and guest speakers. Examples include: Feminist and Human Rights activists, Members of the African National Congress and opposition parties, student and youth groups, and many more!
The program is hosted in Windhoek, Namibia with included excursions to Cape Town, Johannesburg, Etosha, and Walvis Bay. Participants will stay with host families in both South Africa and Namibia, in both rural and urban settings. When not in a host family stay, students will stay in CGEE housing.
