Crossing Borders Education

Aims to support individuals and organizations:

  • To cross borders physically through intercultural programs abroad.
  • To cross borders mentally by understanding and confronting existing preconceptions.
  • To cross borders socially by connecting students to people and issues in developing countries while creating concrete support for current development projects.
