Course Description: This course will explore the educational, health, and developmental needs of rural Thai citizens and indigenous populations through cultural immersion and active participation in service projects. Students will participate in deep cultural immersion activities and service-learning projects in two distinct rural Thai villages, one in the mountains surrounding Chiang Mai, Thailand, and one in the rural Northeast near Khon Kaen, Thailand, that will help alleviate some of the health, educational, and developmental issues present while staying with local families within the villages.

Other activities will include a visit to a groundbreaking new concept school in the Northeast, tours of historically significant sites in Thailand, visiting an HIV/AIDS hospice, sightseeing in Bangkok, and a relaxing few days on a tropical island to end the trip. Students will meet during spring semester for preparatory sessions that will ready them for the experience. Course assignments will include reflective journaling, active discussions during the trip, and a reflective multimedia project at the end of the trip.
