News and Events Details
Included in the program will be foundation lectures in Delhi by Indian faculty, a visit to Agra and the Taj Mahal, time spent at Gandhi's ashram and visiting village development projects, a study of eco-tourism and development in Kerala (including a houseboat trip in the backwaters), and homestays in two locations in Kerala.
Faculty program leader, Dr. Jerry Hembd states "This year's program also includes, for the first time, two weeks in the state of Kerala - which calls itself 'God's Own Country.' I am very excited about this addition to the program. Kerala has historically been seen as a development success story-particularly in terms of education and health care-and we will spend much of our time exploring what this means and the lessons that can be learned. We will be interacting with a variety of local organizations and making numerous site visits. This will also allow us the opportunity to travel by houseboat in the state's backwaters to experience eco-tourism firsthand."
