senegal flagExplore and learn while fulfilling VT’s motto, Ut Prosim: That I May Serve!  The core of this unique experience is a two-week trip to Senegal that includes hands-on participation in research and outreach efforts in sustainable agriculture, education about the country and its people, and a chance to build lifelong friendships while engaging in professional and personal development opportunities.  The framework for this high-impact experience is a special study course offered Winter Session, followed by an optional one-credit independent study spring semester.  Preparation for the trip occurs during fall semester.
