Sign Up for ISLPs in Belize, Croatia & Ghana
UofL's International Service Learning Program engages students in activities to address human and community needs within a structure that’s designed to promote learning and development. This interdisciplinary program contributes to campus internationalization by infusing the classroom with various cultures and preparing students to be more receptive to global and comparative perspectives.

The ISLP Belize 2023 program travels during the university’s Spring Break and offers unique opportunities for immersion, service, and adventure to UofL students. Ranging from the country’s inland Mayan ruins to its world-famous barrier reef to schools in the heart of its Garifuna culture, this trip is an excellent way to learn about yourself and the wider world. We encourage interested students to visit louisville.edu/islp for information on how to apply and to be in contact with Dr. Mary Ashlock for further information on how to enroll in her ISLP course.

The ISLP Croatia 2023 program travels from April 30th to May 10th and offers unique opportunities for immersion, service, and adventure to UofL students. Ranging from the attractive small town where you'll work (Sisak) to its world-famous natural wonder Plitvice National Park (where was James Cameron's inspiration for the movie Avatar) and beautiful beaches by Adriatic Sea, this trip is an excellent way to learn about yourself and the wider world. We encourage interested students to visit louisville.edu/islp for information on how to apply and to be in contact with Dr. Steve Sohn for further information on how to enroll in his ISLP course.
The ISLP Ghana 2023 program travels in late May to work with high school students at Offin Children’s Center, an orphanage in Ashanti that focuses on education and job training. While in Ghana, UofL students will visit centers of the British slave trade, including Assin Manso Ancestral Slave River Park and Elmina Castle, as well as the Kumasi Market and the beautiful Kakum National Park. We encourage students to visit louisville.edu/islp for information on how to apply and to be in contact with Dr. John Ferré for further information on how to enroll in this ISLP course.
