THEO 33970 International Issues

THEO 33938 Summer Service Learning: International

INTRODUCTION TO ISSLP

Despite dramatic changes throughout the world, we continue to see a widening economic disparity between the rich and the poor. The lack of basic resources, access to health, education, and employment remains the challenge for developing and non-industrialized nations. In nations marred by political conflict and violence, efforts of peace, reconciliation, and democratization are slow and its affects are seen most clearly in the lives of the poor. As we continue to face these and other global concerns, the need to educate students about their responsibility in our global community becomes ever apparent. The International Summer Service Learning Program (ISSLP) provides an opportunity to examine causes of poverty and to create links of solidarity across borders.
