International Summer Institute Mentors


The East-West Center seeks Mentors for one-week summer institutes for Southeast Asian and Middle Eastern undergrad environmental leaders.

Mentors select one of five teams (water, food, land, oceans, energy) to team up with.  These 4-person multi-country teams explore Boulder-area sites and meet leading environmental people and organizations.  The goal is to find solutions that can be adapted and taken back to their home campuses in Burma, Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Jordan and the West Bank.

Mentors help by connecting teams with Boulder people/orgs, joining/planning field trips, and having fun with them (rafting, rock climbing, hiking, etc)!

Southeast Asian Institute:  May 25-June 2 Middle East Institute: July 12-19

Please see Mentor application and/or contact Christina Monroe to learn more: monroec@eastwestcenter.org
