Support STEM Students Studying Water Quality Issues Abroad
This Tiger Giving Day, give an Auburn University student a life-changing experience through the Global Learning Immersion for Diverse Experience (GLIDE).
GLIDE offers students the opportunity for interdisciplinary learning about water quality while enhancing their cultural awareness during a study abroad experience in the Dominican Republic. Students will study global issues related to water purification, wastewater treatment, water scarcity and drought management, water conservation, health issues in relation to water, and water-related public policies.
In addition to participating in service-based learning related to water quality issues, students will engage with the local culture through the exploration of historical sites and social activities. The experience will count towards their coursework back in the classroom as part of a challenging curriculum.
GLIDE’s goal is for students to utilize the knowledge gained during this experience to have a positive impact on people, animals and plants in the U.S. and abroad.
