2023 plans! Our latest course offering

We are in the process of designing our seventh course on rural water supply and sanition. Agua del Pueblo and the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity at Cornell are sponsoring the course. We are also brainstorming with the David M. Einhorn Center for Community Engagement and the Cornell Engineering School to revise the course and potentially offer it to Cornell students. We have delivered the course at James Madison, Western New England and Furman Universities. I will attach a draft syllabus. Please let us know if you are interested in participating in the course. Depending on the number of students, the three-week course will cost less than $3,000 per student plus round trip international air fare. The fees will cover all room, board and travel in Guatemala.

I promise that none of us were that type of jerk. However, one of us DID invite the Bay Area Bombers and the New York Chiefs to a roller derby competition allegedly sponsored by the Brooklyn Brewery in our great hall. But we did NOT have any fun and very few of us sustained lasting injuries…
