The Puerto Rico Experience 2017

ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE

MUNDO returns to the Caribbean December 15-21, 2017 to explore more about the histories and legacies of this dynamic U.S. Territory. The experience will feature community service, cultural immersions, and even a trek through an actual rain forest!


AS PART OF THE EXPERIENCE

  • Students will be able to compare and contrast preconceptions and realities of Puerto Rican life in terms of tourism, cultural norms, poverty and hunger, and sustainability in economic practices
  • Give examples of differences in cultural perceptions of native Puerto Ricans and those living abroad in the continental United States
  • Discuss how “voluntourism” detracts from the goal of creating sustainable social change
