The Food, Hunger, Poverty, Environment Immersion is designed to help students meet their social justice-oriented experiential learning requirements while learning about issues related to food production and consumption, hunger, poverty, and the environment. The course blends short lectures, guided discussions and reflections and a 14-day immersion in Cuba interacting with local people of diverse backgrounds for experiential active learning. The goal is to increase students’ understanding of the developing world and to explore the role of business in alleviating poverty through economic development and the pursuit of social justice.
