    Experience the Amazon

    In the Amazon Rainforest Experience program, you will explore the meaning of sustainability and climate-resilience from the perspective of a local Indigenous collective – the Amupakin Collective – as we help out in the community farms, walk the forest to harvest medicinal plants, cook community meals and share stories around the fire.

    Study abroad

    “It’s such an eye-opening experience – living in a different culture and having to adapt to new situations,” says Alex Ogaranko, a UM engineering student who traveled to Griffith University in Australia in 2019 as part of an international exchange. “I made friends from Australia as well as with other exchange students from around the world.”
