MUNDO

Multicultural Understanding through Non-traditional Discovery Opportunities (MUNDO) meets weekly ("Mondays with MUNDO") in one-hour workshop formats to focus on topics related to the service-learning concepts of "What, So What, Now What." Non-traditional discovery opportunities such as campus-wide programming (planned by MUNDO students), Alternative Breaks to locations such as New Orleans, Atlanta and Los Angeles, educational road trips, guest speakers, cultural events, faculty interaction and volunteer opportunities are also utilized to achieve the desired learning outcomes.

MUNDO is both an organization, and a student-focused learning community that allows students to learn how to make a positive difference in the world around them. Sharing of new ideas, perspectives and viewpoints are encouraged. Activities are designed to encourage participants to first think about their own personal identities in terms of who they are, how their values were shaped, etc., to next think about how others' values and beliefs were likely formed, and finally to develop ways to promote cross-cultural dialogue and action that is beneficial to all parties involved.

There are many ways to get involved - learn more at MUNDO's website or by liking us on facebook. Some of our annual signature events include:

  • Salsa & Soul Food
  • Fear Factor Month
  • Mondays with MUNDO
  • TEATRO (the MUNDO visual and performing arts appreciation group)
  • The MUNDO Alternative Break
  • ENGLAND: Histories & Legacies of London Experience
  • The New York Experience
