Our students bring back to their communities..

Empowering Communities Worldwide

Our students enter the Master’s Programs with strong ties to a community of action where they apply what they learn in coursework to create lasting, inclusive change. Upon completing the program, they have already implemented numerous successful change efforts in their home communities (through their practicum, community labs, and other applied projects). With this hands-on change making experience and the support of a global network of change practitioners, they graduate much better equipped to continue a process of positive community growth throughout their professional lives.

Adolphus Dupley (Class of 2015), Liberia
Most of us have had this experience where the professors and the books have the knowledge. Here we're introduced to the situation where the community has the knowledge and we're learning from the community.
The professors are simply facilitating.

Sabina Carlson (Class of 2013), Haiti
This is not a traditional program. It is interested in competency. We receive many action methodologies and instruments. This program helped me to be more sensitive, more human with people, and to have values in my work.

Mavis Windsor (Class of 2007), Canada
Future Generations taught me not to fear any kind of success - instead to collect the successes and walk forward with our community, keeping it going.
