BELIZE, Leadership Experience- Summer 2017
(Led by Leadership Office and Department of Biology)

Belize

Tucked just below Mexico, the tiny haven of Belize awaits you.

Join us for our 2nd Annual Summer Leadership Experience tentatively from May 29, 2017 until June 5, 2017 traveling to Belize to truly experience another culture and a philosophy of life that is breathtakingly different than what we are typically used to living. The focus in biodiversity, sustainability and leadership is sure to captivate and enrich the lives of all who attend.

More than a quarter of the mere 9,000 square miles that make up this country is under a carefully managed system of reserves – and you’ll get to know them well. Just remember to keep your eyes to the sky for over 500 different bird species in Belmopan, your back straight as you snorkel in the coral cays, and your head down as you plunge deep into Crystal Cave.

We are partnering with Biology to allow optional class credit if interested while traveling to Belize. The primary goal of the course is to develop a detailed understanding of how cultural, societal and the conservation of biological diversity are influenced by leaders at several levels. Participants in this course will gain practical skills and knowledge that they can use to become more effective leaders.

Join us and other FSU students to experience this adventure first hand.  You can visit the Leadership Office webpage at www.frostburg.edu/clife/leadership/summer-leadership-experience or contact Doug Baer, djbaer@frostburg.edu, for more information.

All airfare, lodging, meals, transportation and activities are included in the cost.
