May 22nd through June 5th 2018
Organized by Professor Christine Dickinson and Dr. Robert A. Simons of the Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs, the program was offered to both undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in both colleges. Thirteen students made their way to South Africa accompanied not only by the organizing professors, but also by Dean Roland Anglin.
Students were able to earn credit and observe first-hand successful companies and competitive industries operating in South Africa in the mining and tourism industries. The itinerary included:
- Lecture and student meeting at University of the Witwatersrand
- Visit Gold Reef City and explore mining industry; meet with government officials
- Tour Soweto and learn from historical sites surrounding Apartheid
