International Service-Learning

International Service-Learning (International SL) combines the two incredibly powerful High Impact Practices of study abroad and service-learning. Through International SL, students have the opportunity to explore and experience the history, culture, and environment of a different country in ways that typical study abroad trips don't provide.

The Richter Center supports the work of the Division of Continuing and Global Education by providing assistance to faculty members and students who are interested in International SL.  Past Fresno State International SL experiences include:

  • Dominican Republic (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018)
  • Fiji (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018)
  • Ghana (2018)
  • Hong Kong (2014)
  • Tanzania (2017, 2018)
