How eight weeks can change your life

An immersive experience in another part of the world can open up new horizons. It did for our anthropology major Chae Eun Kim '22 when she participated in Lehigh's eight-week summer program in Uganda. Read about the experience that she and several other Lehigh students had in that program in this profile on the Lehigh Arts & Sciences website.

To quote from the profile: "Program founder Kelly Austin, professor of sociology and associate dean of undergraduate programs in the College of Arts and Sciences, says Kim’s experience is not unique. Many of the more than 100 Lehigh students attending the program since it began in 2013 have had life-changing experiences. “Every student who participates is fundamentally changed by this program. And for many students, it puts them on an entirely new career path,” says Austin, citing program alumni now pursuing careers in public health, medicine, and fundraising for humanitarian organizations – choices related to their Ugandan internships and research."
