This is a cross-cultural educational experience where students travel in small teams to countries where the culture differs from theirs. For a minimum of 10 weeks they immerse themselves in the communities and complete full-time placements with local non-profit organizations. Students contribute to community efforts in order to: observe and learn with and from local people and communities; appreciate multiple perspectives on issues; understand how others experience situations and decisions; and, evaluate how leadership functions in other cultures and societies. A rigorous preparation and re-entry process as well as a set of assignments help students go through a structured process of inquiry and reflection to build knowledge through experience. A presentation during the subsequent fall term concludes the internship.

Prerequisites: RCLP 2023 and RCLP 3002, or permission of the instructor.
