The Impact of a Study Abroad Program in Jordan on Undergraduate University Students.
Good, Johnny L.; Campbell, Sherri L.
A study abroad program in Jordan has been run by Ambassador University (Texas) for the last 15 years. During this time, nearly 150 Ambassador University students have participated in a work-study program in Amman sponsored by the Ambassador Foundation. During their stay in Jordan, the students teach Jordanian students with physical and mental disabilities at one of three special education centers. The 20 students selected annually for the program are prepared for their teaching responsibilities by taking special education and conversational Arabic courses. Returning students have commented on how the exchange program has affected their lives and changed their outlook toward people of other cultures. (MDM)
