Simmons World Challenge Info Session
Simmons World Challenge (SWC) is an exciting program designed to empower SOPHOMORE students with the knowledge and skill set necessary to tackle pressing social problems facing local, national and international communities. The course is interdisciplinary, experiential, and student-led. Students work in teams of 3-5 to conduct research, create an actionable solution to address a social problem, and present their results and ideas to the Simmons community. Faculty and graduate students will be available as resources. Use of the library, internet and the community will be integral parts of the experience.
The 2019-2020 Simmons World Challenge, "Language, Power, and Violence in Society" is an 18-credit spring course led by Professors Hugo Kamya and Abel Amado and includes 10 paid days during winter break and 14 days of funded fieldwork in Uganda in the spring (dates TBD).
Applications to SWC 2019-2020 will be accepted from sophomores until 11:59 PM on October 7, 2019. For more information and to download an application, visit the Simmons World Challenge webpage.
