Mexico

Mexico Shoulder to Shoulder incorporates a credit-bearing fall semester course and two weeks on the ground study and service in Mexico during the month of January. The classroom experience immerses students in the study of the history, diverse peoples, and cultures of Mexico, and combines research, presentations, and papers with service on campus. The field experience in Mexico includes individual homestays with Mexican families, intensive manual labor, and reflective intellectual work.
The goal of community service in the cities of Coatepec and Orizaba is not to change Mexico, but to learn from Mexicans about Mexico and about the impact of the United States on our neighbors.
