The International Partnership for Service Learning
In International Partnership programs of a semester, year or summer, students engage in formal academic instruction for credit under the direction of qualified in-country faculty from our affiliated universities and they volunteer some 20 hours a week in an established service agency under the direction of a professional supervisor for the duration of the program.
By combining study and service, students field test theories taught in the classroom and are immersed in the society in various social, economic, educational, and political strata, enabling them to see the society through the eyes of others and to learn to manage complexity.
As you study and serve, you engage in guided self refection, examining your own emerging and changing beliefs and values, and developing a sense of direction in your own lives.
Students can visit and travel to Ecuador, Jamaica, England, France, Mexico and Scotland. For more information go to: www.ipsl.org.
