Faculty, Students Return from Study Abroad Trip to Peru

Five faculty — Mary Dosch, Janelle Miedema, David Paul, Vicki Riedinger, and Lisa Stewart — just returned from a leading a two week study abroad in Peru with 23 students.

For the second year in a row, the group was a cross disciplinary service-oriented group consisting of undergraduate and graduate students from education, psychology, speech language hearing sciences, counseling and social work.

Highlights from the trip included a service learning project living with the Peruvian families while building a cement and rock pathway through their village of Laquina, visiting their elementary school, trekking through Machu Picchu, and interacting with students from a university in Lima.
