The Center for Social Concerns offers the International Summer Service Learning Program to help students understand their place in the global community. Students spend eight weeks internationally with a variety of partner organizations and receive 4 credits for the work. Through ISSLP, students look at pressing global issues from a first-hand perspective, providing them with an opportunity to study the causes of poverty and create solidarity on a global scale. The ISSLP begins with THEO 33970 during the spring semester before students depart. This is followed by THEO 33938, which includes the eight week service-learning immersion in a developing country. The ISSLP provides airfare, room and board, and a $1,000 travel award.
For students interested in learning more, The Center for Social Concerns is offering an ISSLP information session on October 13, from 7:00 pm-8:00 pm. Applications for the ISSLP sessions in summer 2022 close on October 25. Visit the ISSLP website to see the full list of locations available, stories about students who have taken part in the ISSLP, and more information about applying.
