International NGO Fieldwork: Spring Break 2016
Students spent 5 days in Amsterdam and 3 days in Paris for an Alternative Spring Break to study International Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and Intergovernmental Organizations (IGOs). Participating students enrolled in PLS 499: "International NGOs" in the Winter Quarter 2016. This group traveled to Europe during Spring Break and enrolled in CLS 362 "International Fieldwork" during the Spring Quarter 2016. This course examined the missions of international NGOs such as Doctors Without Borders, MAP International, The Red Cross, The Salvation Army, World Vision, Habitat for Humanity, CARE, and The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. There was also a service-learning component to this experience.

Student Comments 2011
Visiting Amsterdam was rejuvenating, eye opening and motivating. It was rejuvenating in that it reaffirmed my desire to be a public servant; eye opening in that I was able to observe and experience what progressive policies can accomplish, such as eliminating homelessness; and motivating in that it strengthened my devotion to strive to be an agent of social change.
