In 2019-2020, the UCI Costa Rica Program will be taking the year to revise and update the curriculum; cultivate partnerships with campus units, faculty, and community partners; and seek out sustainable funding to keep this transformative experience accessible to all students. During this year the program will not be facilitating a student cohort or traveling aboard. Watch our website for updates.
Do you want to make a difference in the world? Do you feel an obligation to do good? What does the world really need from you? What do you want from yourself? The Global Service Scholars Program seeks to help students answer these questions for themselves. The program gives priority to students in the School of Social Ecology, but all UCI undergraduates are welcome to apply.
The mission of the Olive Tree Initiative is to promote conflict analysis and resolution through experiential education by providing students and community with the education, training and experiences needed to better negotiate and solve conflicts. We run yearly experiential learning trips to Turkey-Armenia (June) and the Middle East (Israel, West Bank, Jordan – September).
