A Trip to the Navajo Nation

October 16, 2013

Twelve honors intercultural communication students travelled to a Navajo reservation in Arizona during fall break to participate in three service learning projects. First, they'll help design an anti-bullying program at Tsaile Elementary School. Then the students will put together a presentation for Diné College students about strategies for academic success.  They'll also participate in the panel presentation "Teaching the 21st Century Learner" for faculty and staff of the college.

Check out photos and updates from the trip, as they happen:
