Program Overview:
In small groups, students shadow professionals in community-based settings, including hospitals, schools, health clinics, and social service agencies. In addition, we hear from local service providers on topics relevant to health, education, and social services. We also participate in a variety of excursions designed to introduce students to the physical as well as cultural and social environment of this beautiful island. In the course, we discuss power and privilege, as well as intersectionality of identities, focusing largely on race, gender, and nationality. Through observations, readings, critical reflections and group debriefing, we explore the meaning of service in the context of another culture, as well as formulating a better understanding of our ethic of meaningful service.
