Program Overview

Program Description:

This winter break course brings the true spirit of international education by doing community engagement abroad in Cambodia, a country rich in history and cultural traditions, but that has also experienced one of the worst forms of genocide and conflict in recent years. Students will arrive in Siem Reap Cambodia and immediately be immersed in the rich culture and history of the region by visiting and learning about Angkor Wat and the 12th century architecture that it represents. Traveling to Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital city, students will visit several museums including Toul Sleng and receive an introduction to the Khmer Rouge’s oppressive regime of the mid 1970’s. Many important seminars and peace building projects are the core of this program and promise to create a truly life changing experience for each participant. The program is done in partnership with the Spirit in Education Movement (SEM) and the Center for Peace and Conflict Studies. This experiential learning opportunity will grant students unique access to the red light and slum areas in Phnom Penh where human trafficking is a serious issue.
