South African Study Abroad Program


Point B social justice program is a flexible two–week program that is designed for your colleagues to increase critical thinking and foster lasting relationships with other faculty members of your peers and community leaders within South Africa. Why this is important is because it allows you to build bridges creating a greater appreciation for diversity across the diaspora with other universities and community leaders expanding the study abroad program initiatives with student exchange and faculty teaching abroad. This will enable a repeatable and sustainable program.


Our program targets minority students of color and first–generation students providing opportunities that are otherwise not afforded an opportunity to experience.


The program objective is to offer students an opportunity to examine past social structures on racial and ethnic minorities between the US and South Africa, realizing the impact on modern–day life. Examples of focus areas will include:

RACE & ETHNICITY– We will look at the framework of race & ethnicity by sharing the linkage between Apartheid and the Jim Crow laws to the alignment of the Civil Rights and ANC movement gaining cross– cultural learning, thus, seeing through a new lens to positively impact the student with a deeper
understanding of their self and ancestors, contributing to their personal growth.

HOUSING– Housing and its impact in today’s economy which links back to race and ethnicity. We’ll visit some townships and other communities to meet community leaders.

SOCIAL ECONOMICS & POLITICAL CONDITIONS– We will investigate the social economics of South Africa by visiting sites (e.g., Constitution Hill, Mandela Foundation, etc.) exploring how the SA government party systems work and operate today. Also, visit some universities to meet faculty peers and students alike building lasting relationships.

Note: our programs are very flexible and can be modified according to the school’s department
