Study Abroad! Hands on International Experience with Global Engagement Summer Institute

The Northwestern University Center for Global Engagement is excited to share with you a distinctive, credit-bearing study abroad and experiential learning program called the Global Engagement Summer Institute (GESI). GESI begins at Northwestern’s Chicago campus with intensive pre-departure coursework in community development and international leadership. Students then venture abroad to intern in interdisciplinary teams of four to five at community-based nonprofits in Bolivia, India, Nicaragua, or Uganda. At the end of the summer, students from all four sites return to Chicago for a Final Learning Summit, where they share geographical experiences, reflect on their learning, and explore how to transform their GESI summer into a lifetime of global engagement. Students receive two credits (equivalent to six semester hours) from Northwestern upon completion.

This is a great opportunity for your students because it pairs rigorous academic training with hands-on international development experience.

Feel free to contact GESI Global Engagement Summer Institute with any questions.
