A ten-day leadership workshop “in the field” of urban New Delhi and rural Rajasthan, India.
During this program, students will engage with leaders in India’s cultural, religious, political, and economic sectors and interact with the students at Delhi University through peer-to-peer workshops. Students will also have the opportunity to practice and hone their leadership skills on service projects through collaboration and creativity with NGO partners and rural Indian organizations. In addition, students will visit the iconic Taj Mahal where they have the opportunity to reflect on ancient, medieval, and modern “greatness.” Students will return to ASU with increased global awareness and strengthened leadership skills.
Prior to the trip, selected students will be required to attend five pre-program orientation meetings. At the same time, they will work in student teams to develop a service project with the help of a local NGO in Rajasthan. They will make presentations on their progress at pre-program meetings. Post-program, students will complete an analysis of their project's successes and failures, to include reflection on themselves as project leaders and cultural integrators, and on the entire experience.
