Study Tour to South Africa

Promoting “the world within reach,” a delegation of students, faculty, scholars and community practitioners travels to South Africa and other African countries each summer on a Study Tour. Organized by the U.S.-Africa Partnership for Stronger Communities Project, the group visits townships, villages, higher education and governmental institutions, social agencies, and historical areas to learn about cultural and religious diversity, and study international social and economic policies and programs that help to promote change and development. The countries selected will provide historic, cultural, religious and present-day information to help the Study Tour participants to better assess: the structure and position of government, how social and economic policies and programs are being formulated and implemented, and how these policies and programs are impacting the health, welfare and rights of the poor and vulnerable. The tour can be taken as a credit course.
