Doctoral and master’s-level students in Appalachian State University’s Reich College of Education and one undergraduate in Appalachian's Beaver College of Health Sciences traveled to Ethiopia in May 2015 to explore social/educational change in East Africa, as well as human rights and social justice from a cross-cultural perspective.
Based in Bahir Dar, a city in the northern Amhara region of Ethiopia, the group also visited local cultural/historical sites to gain a deep appreciation for the richness of Ethiopian culture and the diverse ways in which Ethiopia is engaging globally.
