Our study abroad in Uganda was housed at GSU for several years. This upcoming spring, we will launch our first KSUganda education abroad program to Uganda. The program builds on Dr. Swahn's extensive work in Uganda over the past 10-15 years. See her talk about her research. The 2023 Maymester program will be led by 3 KSU faculty to bring a wealth of expertise:
Dr. Monica Swahn
Dr. Kandice Porter
Dr. Seneca Vaught
Please contact any of the professors with questions.

Uganda, known as the “Pearl of Africa,” is one of the most biodiverse countries in the World. Its stunning landscapes are matched by the rich and diverse Ugandan culture. The KSUganda study abroad program examines the social determinants of health and explores interdisciplinary strategies to build capacity among vulnerable populations. Over a period of 17 days, students from diverse majors and disciplinary backgrounds will explore the rich cultural, economic, and environmental diversity represented in Uganda. Students will have the opportunity to engage in research and service-learning projects aimed at better understanding and addressing social and environmental stressors, as well as social entrepreneurship intervention strategies.
