Center for Global Education and Experience, Augsburg College Reviews
Being Black in Mexico
Submitted by destiny - Augsburg College | May 23, 2017
This program did a wonderful job of showing its students the reality of Mexican culture. With that said I feel that this program needs to address issues regarding anti-blackness in Mexico and even within the program. There were multiple racial incidence inside and outside the program and the lack of discussion and effort towards these issues is and was very disheartening for the black students in the program. If Augsburg College wants more students of color- specifically black students- to study abroad there needs to be more action and discussion in place when these situations occur.

There are a lot of things that need to be addressed. One of those things being communication style, respect, racism, and many more. Luckily there were some super supportive staff but I hope things will.

I am incredibly thankful for the opportunity to have gone on this incredible journey, stay with three incredible host families, travel throughout two different countries, and learn in completely new ways from professors, speakers, experiences, and by looking at what I've learned in the past with a new perspective.

CGEE is a wonderful program if you are looking for an intimate and immersive experience. The program is rigorous, but it is planned so that you gain a lot of knowledge inside and outside the classroom.

This program has changed my life. I have conceptualized a lot of what I'd been learning in my classes, but bridging the gap between theory and practice with experiential learning and hearing from so many different voices. My worldview has grown and been altered. I have grown and learned so much from my classes, my homestays, speakers, and from working within this type of group setting and learning pedagogy.
