The three-week trip will take place during Summer A, 2005. The tentative itinerary will include:
Three days of orientation and introductions in Accra involving the UNF students and Ghanaian students
Two days of travel to the North, stopping in Kumasi and proceeding on to Tamale where the entire group will split up into their project teams and disperse to their locations
Five to seven days of work on the individual projects
One day to assemble as a group for evaluation and reflection on what was learned during the projects
Seven to eight days visiting national parks to consider conservation issues, Kumasi to connect the current form of governance to the tribal system by studying the history of the Asante Kingdom and then a visit to Cape Coast where students will be invited to examine the history of slavery through the text of the slave castles.
Throughout the trip, students will visit local schools to interact with local school children.
Throughout the trip, students will visit local medical facilities to see how the health challenges of the country are being addressed.
Students will be expected to enroll in a one-hour service learning colloquium during the Summer A term. They also will be expected to attend some classes upon their return from Ghana to allow them to academically reflect on the experience.
