Ethical Considerations for Partnerships in Short-Term Service Learning Programs

Wednesday, October 19
8:15 AM - 9:45 AM
Room: Newport

Building ethical and sustainable multi-lateral partnerships requires diligence, flexibility, and lots of cross-cultural communication. Join us for a lively discussion of ways to navigate cultural dissonance and manage expectations when multiple stakeholders are invested in a project. With each partner bringing many different perspectives, how do you even begin to measure successes and failures of international service learning programs?
