The Food and Agribusiness Institute is home to a wide variety of opportunities to learn and immerse in cultures abroad. From trips to places such as Myanmar and Cuba, Santa Clara students have enjoyed incomparable experiences that have influenced their college experiences and vocations and avocations.                                                                    Each year, FAI takes a group of twelve students and two or three faculty leaders to a developing country. A one unit preparation course precedes the trip and a two unit reflection course completes the experience.
