Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study is to find any long-term effects on students who participated in Dr. Carlos Silveira’s short-term, full immersion, study abroad, International Social Justice Service Learning course. This qualitative study consists of interviews from former students who were surveyed on their participation in the program, anytime from 2005-2017. Students enrolled in his three-week arts-based service learning program worked alongside Paññāsāstra University (PUC) students in Phnom Penh and or Siem Reap. For the purpose of this thesis, participants will be referred to as the CSULB students who completed Dr. Silveira’s program. Having completed this program myself, my experience has benefited both my education and personal development in cultural awareness. I seek to discover if these effects can have a lasting impact. By contacting participants in this program from its inception 10 years ago to the most recent participants, I will seek to analyze their responses to determine if their experience had any long-term effects on their education, career and/or personal lives.
