How can development projects and associated research improve community well-being?

Global Health Initiative Program (GHIP)

Is an innovative and interdisciplinary initiative to improve community well-being while generating cutting edge knowledge about development. The Sustainable Community Development in Tanzania study abroad grows out of the GHIP initiative

Through a community engagement approach student from abroad universities will work with communities (in rural Tanga region, Tanzania) to identify, understand and address community problems. Through this engagement, students will learn about approaches to development, theories of development, and the history of development in Tanzania. Students will also gain special insight into a particular issue through their community development project.

Our interns/volunteers will learn different approaches to community engagement. They will then put these theories to practice by working with communities to identify, understand and address pressing community problems.

Again, Experiential learning opportunities let you apply your knowledge and insight within real world contexts outside the classroom, by broadening your experience. You can gain a heightened sense of civic responsibility, sharpen your critical thinking skills, share your unique talents, interests and passions.
