International Field Courses for African Nova Scotian Global Leaders

Dalhousie University will provide international field courses in Ghana — a non-traditional destination — and the USA, focusing on delivering culturally appropriate mobility experiences for African Nova Scotian students. In partnership with the University of Ghana, Youth Bridge Foundation (a Ghanaian foundation committed to bridging gaps for positive youth development) and selected Historically Black Colleges and Universities partners. The project objectives are creating online and in-person international learning experiences and cultural connections, including service learning in Ghana.

Students’ international and cultural experiences will lead to academic and employment benefits. Institutional linkages with partners will be strengthened, and community linkages and connections will be developed.
