Sustainable Development Service-Learning Course in Peru!

There is a new service-learning study abroad program at Georgia Tech!

This course aims to bridge the gap between engineering (and other disciplines!), education, and the developing world, challenging students to use their academic training to make intellectual contributions to communities both in Atlanta and all over the world.

In the summer of 2009, the first international service-learning abroad trip from this program will embark to Cusco, Peru, studying sustainable development. This program will last six weeks, from June 21st until August 1st, and will be housed in the Building Construction department, and will be taught by Dr. Daniel Castro. The course also has a Spanish language component (taught by Dr. Vicki Galloway). Currently, this course will be free elective credit for students in other majors.
