Active participation in learning

This study abroad experience at Roger Williams University was the brain child of Professor Paola Prado (Communications), Professor Autumn Quezada de Tavarez (Latin American History), and Dr. Kerri Warren (Biology/Public Health). Our years of research and volunteer work both independently and with FIMRC (Foundation for the International Relief of Children http://www.fimrc.org) prompted us to create unique experiential learning experiences in a learning classroom in Restauracion, Dominican Republic.

Students alternately study history, journalism, and public health conditions in both the Dominican Republic and on the Haitian border. This study abroad experience is unlike any other study abroad at Roger Williams University rooted in service learning work and fair trade learning (modeled on Amizade’s model of shared learning http://www.amizade.org)
