Multi-Cultural Student Services



This annual winter break trip is offered through the Department of Ethnic Studies in collaboration with Multicultural Student Services and the Center for International Studies.  It gives students the opportunity to visit one of the most colorful and intellectually stimulating regions of the world.  During this trip to Southeast Asia, students have the chance to interact with area colleagues, as well as with people from Thailand and Laos.  This study abroad program broadens a student’s perspective on international affairs and the world views of others; offers an analysis of race, ethnicity, class and gender from a transnational perspective; and creates a recognition, understanding and appreciation of the uniqueness and rich cultural heritage of the peoples of Southeast Asia.
