The Cape Town program engages students in service-learning, community-based research and academic courses focused on the people, history, politics and culture of post-apartheid South Africa with an emphasis on initiatives undertaken and challenges faced by an emerging democracy. Service-learning, expected of all students, is core to the program enabling students to contribute to development efforts of the Center's NGO partners, activists and residents of Cape Town communities as they learn about them and their work. When integrated with critical reflection and concurrent coursework these opportunities deepen learning about South Africa and the ethics and practice of service in such contexts, and help ensure that the program and its participants positively impact citizens and communities of the Western Cape.
