Your local network in Cali plays a big part in bringing your academics to life. You’ll have knowledgeable, hand-picked instructors from our host university, Universidad del Valle. You’ll live alongside Colombian roommates that can show you the ropes in a new country. You’ll have staff passionate about the development of Afro-Colombian communities and want you to be, too. With a community like this, race, identity, and ethnicity won’t just be something you learn about in class—it will be an active part of your everyday life.
