Welcome to the website/blog for the UMKC Senegal Study Abroad Program! Make your plans now to join the UMKC Women’s & Gender Studies and Black Studies Programs, the School of Nursing & Health Studies, the Departments of History and Foreign Languages & Literature, the UMKC Women’s Center, the UMKC Honors College, and the Kansas City-based Wash Project on an exciting new program to Senegal, West Africa! Topics to be studied include women’s economic empowerment, health education initiatives, philanthropy, and social entrepreneurship. No language requirement.

The first group of students traveled to Senegal in January 2016 (postponed from January 2015 due to the Ebola crisis). Dates for the next trip will be announced at a later date  — please watch this space for updates.
