The Honduras program has been cancelled for summer 2015.  This is a 16 day three credit class (ICS 270) in Honduras from mid-May-early June. In partnership with the Heifer Project, this trip explores issues related to poverty, development, gender concerns and human rights.

The course of study includes one week devoted to a cultural, political and historical orientation to Honduras, based in Tegucigalpa, the capital city; a second week where students live in villages that are in partnership with the Heifer Project, including service-learning with development projects in those villages; and a third week with more service-learning in an orphanage and time in Copan, site of Mayan ruins in Honduras. The course includes reflection and discussion while in-country, as well as preparatory readings and post-trip debriefings.
