Sixteen Years

This year will be the sixteenth international service learning trip to Belize.  Forty-five faculty, staff and students representing Dentistry, Nursing, Justice Administration and Communications will travel to Belize through the International Service Learning Program.

This blog will document our experiences with daily posts.

While in Belize, the students will break into groups and implement a number of service projects, including operating a dental clinic, first aid training, presenting workshops on bullying, teacher training, and community canvasing.  Integration of academic course content with these service experiences are designed to increase students’ critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills.  The weeklong trip won't be all work, though. While in Belize, the students will have the chance to visit such sites as the Mayan ruins, Belize Zoo and the U.S. Embassy in Belmopan.
