Educating the Whole Person: The Casa Way of Learning
Casa de la Solidaridad and Casa Bayanihan are unique transformational study abroad programs located in El Salvador and The Phillipines respectively. The significance of both names is "House of Solidarity." Through the pilars of accompanyment, academics, community, and spirituality students learn both outside and inside the classroom. Students spend two days a week in communities where they develop authentic relationships, bear witness to the realities of the tenacious people living in a developing country, and experience true liberation. SLU students who have studied abroad through the Casa Network will recount their experiences of uncovering the necessity of human interconnectedness.
