World iView: Discover Mexico: Perception, Passion, Purpose (Diversity)
Deborah Maertens, assistant director of faculty imkmigration and political science lecturer, and Bradley Benton, assistant professor of history
The 2014 spring break course, "Discover Mexico: Perception, Passion and Purpose," was a life changing experience for students. Maertens, Benton and several students will discuss how the study abroad program combined a historical and cultural survey of Puebla and Mexico City with a three-day home stay where students took part in service learning projects in a rural community. In reflective journaling required during the course, students wrote such statements as "words cannot describe how it changes your perception," and "My idea of Mexico was flipped upside down."
