8. How can Service Learning be combined with Study Abroad?
In the past, faculty members from Anthropology, the School of Social Welfare, Africana Studies, and History, among others, have led short term study abroad programs in the summer or winter sessions. In these programs, students had the chance to interact with communities abroad while participating in activities such as learning an indigenous language (Anthropology) or participating in AIDS awareness programs (Africana Studies). If you are thinking about incorporating service learning into a faculty-led study abroad trip, please contact the Study Abroad Office and ask to speak to one of the advisors about faculty-led programs. Each faculty member is in charge of logistical and academic arrangements; the Study Abroad office handles the administrative side (paperwork, billing, health insurance, registration, etc). The Study Abroad office is also associated with Global Service Corps
(www.globalservicecorps.org), which you may want to use to help a student set up his or her own experience.
