Info Session for Eastern Europe Study Abroad: Leadership for Social Good will be September 15, 11-12 p.m. All who RSVP will get a guaranteed lunch.

The current Summer Abroad Program in Central and Eastern Europe offers interested students the opportunity to gain insight into global civil society, to learn about the challenges of creating and leading effective and sustainable social enterprises, and to make a positive impact by working closely with a non-profit organization in Budapest, Hungary. This program introduces students to the concept of “sustainable communities” and is affiliated with Serve-Learn-Sustain.

The program takes students to Prague, Czech Republic, Vienna (new location), Austria, and Budapest, Hungary.

During the nine-week program (eight weeks abroad), students earn nine management credits through a combination of lectures, case studies, readings, guest speakers, and direct engagement with a non-profit organization.  The goal is for students to better understand the realities of social entrepreneurship and the leadership that it takes to develop strong civil societies.

The Central and Eastern Europe experience will develop students’ abilities to make a positive contribution to organizations dedicated to creating social value and addressing the needs of society. Whether a student's future plans involve starting or working for a non-profit, a social business, or a for-profit company, this program will provide them with theoretical and experiential knowledge of the international social sector.
