Cross cultural awareness
Cross Cultural Awareness

The CIS La Vida Local model consists of a series

of activities and workshops that can be

replicated in all programs sites.  Students

participate in social and educational activities

and encounter local culture in authentic ways.

These experiences, combined with reflection

and group synthesis, create a deeper

understanding of local life.
