Seminars for Undergraduate Students

As part of its efforts to build capacity in individuals and to create spaces for learning about the betterment of society, the Institute offers a sequence of annual seminars designed to accompany undergraduate students through four years of university studies. Each seminar is approximately ten days long.

The purpose of these intensive seminars is to raise the consciousness of youth about the importance of engaging in action and discourse directed towards social change; to develop their capacity to reflect, to analyze, and to learn from action; to explore elements of a conceptual framework for contributing to the advancement of civilization; to provide them with tools to understand and analyze the culture in which they are immersed as well as the content of the university courses they are studying; to help them assume ownership of their education; and to assist them in their efforts to acquire the kind of knowledge that will enable them to live fruitful, productive and meaningful lives.
