ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE

MUNDO returns to the Caribbean December14-20, 2018 to explore more about the histories and legacies of this dynamic U.S. Territory. The experience will feature community service, cultural immersion, and even a trek through an actual rainforest!

AS PART OF THE EXPERIENCE

  • Students will be able to compare and contrast preconceptions and realities of Puerto Rican life regarding 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
