Civic Engagement on Study Abroad

In collaboration with Kalamazoo College’s Mary Jane Underwood Stryker Center for Civic Engagement (CCE), the CIP offers an opportunity for students to study abroad while remaining committed to responsible, ethical civic engagement.

One Quarter Winter (3 K-Units)


The CCE connects students, faculty, and community members in sustained partnerships that foster collaborative learning and civic participation in a diverse, democratic society. Forging links between theory and practice, the CCE promotes informed, ethical engagement to build a more just, equitable and sustainable world.

About two thirds of K students work in CCE courses, student-led programs, and summer internships that address educational and health equity, myriad issues in food justice, immigrant rights, sustainability, criminal justice reform, and arts for social change.
