Responsible Travel

Travel in a culturally-responsible way. Increase cross-cultural understanding. Experience different cultures and lifestyles. Increase environmental awareness. Let your tourist dollar benefit local providers of goods and services. If you are interested in these goals, you may be able to arrange travel in conjunction with an independent study course. Or, by a thorough investigation of one of the organizations which sponsor such travel, you may satisfy the requirements for a research paper in the HIS-107 (Modern World History) course.
