Lectures and workshops by Drs. Campbell and Prado constitute the academic content in this program, but the so-called “supplemental” activities prove just as important. Beyond readings and in-class work, students hear from nearly a dozen local experts, visit key cultural and historical sites, participate in environmental justice projects, and engage in their own hands-on research of local communities.  In the latter, professors and local bilingual aides help navigate RWU students through linguistic and cultural barriers.

“Environmental Justice in Brazil” features a one-credit service-learning course for participants. Our on site partner will facilitate the logistical, academic, and service-oriented needs of the RWU group. In Minas Gerais, students will participate in outreach projects that serve local communities as coordinated by Amizade Global Service Learning, a Brazilian/U.S. non-governmental organization. This work will provide the basis for reflective group discussion and student journaling on the topics of community empowerment, service learning, and global citizenship.
