BBIP-SLI (service learning immersion)
Beyond Bridges: Israel Palestine "Service Learning Immersion" takes university students to the Middle East on a journey of social justice activism and conflict transformation. The program combines rigorous academics and practical hands-on service learning, allowing students to explore questions at the core of all conflicts. BBIP-SLI also aims to create spaces for both personal and collective growth, helping students gain new understandings of the roles they play in international conflicts, and how this relates to their political identities. Moving beyond the stage of practical peace agreements, or “beyond bridges,” this course challenges participants to look at long-term solutions to end inter-communal conflict, transforming societies into their true potential.
Intersession 2013 BBIP-SLI program dates are Wednesday, January 2 - Wednesday, January 16.
