Center for Engagement and Community Development

International Service Teams (IST)


istThe IST program works with international communities to identify a need and develop a 10 week summer long service-learning project to help meet the community need. The projects are completed by an interdisciplinary team of K-State students. The students work to engage in community outreach, civic leadership and cross-cultural communication skills while developing their capacity to serve as a team, understand the ethical implications of international community development and engage in a transformational leadership through service experience.
