The International Service-Learning and Leadership – IPSL “Offered in 14 countries, IPSL programs unite academic study for credit and volunteer service, giving students a fully integrated study abroad experience. The service enlivens the formal learning, and the learning informs the service. Both students and the host communities benefit from the substantial service each student gives. By studying at a local university and serving 15-20 hours per week in a school, orphanage, health clinic or other agency addressing human needs, students find their knowledge of the host culture--and of themselves--takes on greater depth and meaning.”
