“Bridging the Americas: Promoting Global Solutions for Local Landfill Problems through Student Service and Learning”

“Bridging the Americas” will foster trilateral mobility by bringing together students from Mexico, the U.S., and Argentina to evaluate landfill pollution across the Americas and to develop policy recommendations for reducing waste and environmental contamination. This project is an interdisciplinary and multi-‐‐country initiative that promotes student service learning and local community engagement, and includes faculty mentorship from all three partnering institutions. The student research teams, which are jointly mentored by faculty from each institution, will explore best practices about waste disposal management both inside the classroom and through visits to local landfills in the respective country.
