Program Tanzania Engineering tab 1

Sustainable and Resilient Tanzanian Community focuses on applied, service-learning projects in the Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania. Students will contribute to the sustainability of a partnered community’s long-term food, water, energy, and health systems in conjunction with the School of Environment and Natural Resources (SENR) study abroad program. In addition to participating in service in a global context, students will explore the complex challenges and opportunities of sustainable development in rural Tanzania.

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
  • Describe the impact that development interventions have on communities,
  • Engage more effectively in intercultural communications both personally and professionally,
  • Demonstrate the process for designing, implementing and evaluating a development project in an international community, and
  • Apply knowledge of community and development theory and practice to formulate strategies to improve community resilience and sustainability in rural, Tanzanian community contexts.
