A reflection on the Bolivian service-learning program I participated in as a Slippery Rock University student in partnership with Amizade Global Service-Learning.
An introduction to the service-learning program I'll be participating in during January 2018. Our team will serve local communities in education-based service in Cochabamba, Bolivia for two weeks and participate in homestay living with a local family.
How does Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) use the concept of placemaking to establish itself as a place of learning that aligns with the values it puts forth? Though this project, I will examine five pieces of evidence I collected where I found CMU to uphold and ignore aspects of placemaking as it relates to their vision and mission statements.
