Achieving sustainable development goals through community-engaged internships

What Makes Us Unique:

Marquette’s Sibanye Cape Town program has helped students gain new perspectives and immerse themselves in South African culture through coursework at the University of the Western Cape and community-based learning internships.

What’s Included in Our Programs:
The Sibanye Cape Town program, in conjunction with the University of the Western Cape, builds upon Marquette’s strong tradition of community-based learning and engagement. The program offers you the unique opportunity to increase your understanding of the people, history, culture and traditions of South Africa through integrated academic course work and direct immersion into the culture through community-based service.
To help ensure a positive experience, a full-time resident director is on More site in South Africa to guide you and help you delve more deeply into issues you encounter as you immerse yourself in South African society. Your instruction will also come from government, religious, business, civic and community leaders who continue to build this nation, citizens who have dedicated their lives to a new South Africa, people who have contributed to its ability to rise above apartheid to bring about reconciliation and inclusiveness. You will observe firsthand how people of traditionally divided groups come together to act collectively for the common good — and succeed.
From education to political science to nursing majors, students from all disciplines are eligible to study in South Africa. Throughout the semester, you will take four or five courses, two of which are designed specifically for program participants. You can choose the other two or three courses from University of the Western Cape curriculum.
Participants live together in a living learning community, called the Kimberley House. The house is located in the Observatory (“Obs”) neighborhood of Cape Town, which is an intimate community with great energy and a lively atmosphere. Located very near the University of Cape Town, everything you need from restaurants to coffee shops to grocery stores are within blocks from the house. This community will be your base to explore Cape Town and South Africa.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Put your education to work to address global challenges. You will serve with a community-based organization two days a week during the semester. These service learning sites let you make a difference in the ongoing transformation of South Africa through working on community education, health issues, gender inequities, sustainable living and youth education.

The selected organizations provide services for and advocate on behalf of people whose voices are not heard and who continue to struggle with injustice and pervasive poverty. They encourage those they serve to empower themselves and to be voices for change. Your interests and professional goals will be strongly considered in your placement.
