Puerto Rico

The focus of this GIE is diversity, equity, and inclusion, specifically exploring what it means to be a modern-day colony. During this unique program, students will interact with local vendors and community leaders, while getting an inside perspective of the city. Students will participate in numerous company visits related to strategies for diversity and inclusion in the Puerto Rican corporate landscape, key challenges and opportunities for diverse populations in Puerto Rico, and insights into business culture and diversity in San Juan.

The program will start in San Juan before moving to Ponce mid-week. In Ponce, students will also engage in a hands-on service-learning activity, actively working to better the community they are visiting while learning about the challenges unique to the area through a management discussion.

Dr. Allison Schlobohm, Clinical Assistant Professor of Management and Corporate Communication, will lead this immersion.
