Having now returned home following the student South Africa study-tour, I am finally able to catch up on my official ‘thank you’ to you for making our 2016 course on ‘Narratives of Peace & Conflict’ a wonderful success.
South Africa was an amazing experience for our students. We had 24 students from three countries and the intercultural learning and interactions and friendships among the three groups of students exceeded my highest expectations. The students were so completely engaged in the course content on peace, conflict and reconciliation that they would be engaged in debates and dialogues with each other (on buses, in restaurants, in their free time) on issues of identity, poverty, urban development, forgiveness, etc. — it was a professor’s dream!
The day-long program you delivered for our group was exceptional. I especially value working with a company that is invested in the community.
