The session will be held from 4:30-5:30 p.m. in room 204 of Aliber Hall, 2847 University Ave.

The course, Sustainable Development in Uganda, is a three-week, six-credit course that incorporates in-class meetings starting in the spring semester. The next trip to Uganda will take place between mid-May to the first week in June.


The seminar qualifies as a business, history and honors class, and fulfills engaged citizen and multicultural course requirements. It will cover topics including human rights, democracy, entrepreneurship, education, tourism, health care, business practices and sustainable development.
