In 2012, a faculty-staff team from Hamline University led a course in Rwanda. Support from their International and Off Campus Programs later enabled the faculty member to visit a Rwandan university. As a result, in 2016, students from the home institution collaborated with Rwandan students to create a workshop. In Rwanda, U.S. students presented on youth involvement in the 1960s civil rights movement and Rwandan students presented on youth involvement in post-genocide reconciliation. During this session, a faculty, staff, and student team will instruct participants in how to create a collaborative environment that leads to meaningful student engagement, using the Rwanda project as an example. Participants will leave the session with concrete information about successful programs for faculty-staff collaboration and how such programs can build student engagement abroad.
