“A Study Abroad Model Focusing on Storytelling and Heritage”
This faculty-led program between two long-standing partner institutions, SUNY Broome Community College (SUNY Broome) and Universidad de Celaya (Celaya), will be the first study abroad program at SUNY Broome to offer bilateral homestay experiences for its students. In the program, SUNY Broome students will travel to Guanajuato City and San Miguel de Allende. Students will present their shared research to K-12 schools affiliated with Celaya. Ceyala students will expand their understanding of academic English and local American heritage by visiting various cultural sites, such as Little Italy, the Farmer’s Museum, the Baseball Hall of Fame, and the Fenimore Museum. Together, students from both institutions will prepare a presentation and small exhibit to highlight their stories, which will be featured at the Bundy Museum of History and Art.
