Literacy and Leadership in Rwanda – A Service-Learning Course

EDUC-L295 (30667)  Literacy and Leadership in Rwanda – A Service-Learning Course  (1 cr.) Vera Marinova; Wed., 7:00–9:00 pm; FQ 012A



The Literacy and Leadership course prepares students for an international summer service-learning trip to work with an English summer camp (Kabwende Primary School) in Kinigi, Rwanda.  The 8-week session will address service ethics, history, culture, and politics, language, and training for camp instructors. The Spring 2015 semester section of the course serves as an introduction to Rwandan culture and pre-departure orientation for interested students.  The course will be followed by a month-long service trip that will take place during the summer term (July 13 – August 10, 2015).  The service trip includes excursions to Gisoze Geoncide Museum, Lake Kivu, Nyungwe National Forest (one of the oldest montane forests in Africa), Nyamata Genocide Memorial, and many more.


NOTE:  Students interested in traveling to Rwanda will have to also register for EDUC-L296 (2 cr.), a month-long summer course (Summer 2015) that takes place in Kinigi, Rwanda.
