Welcome to the Pachaysana Blog. We open this space to further the dialogue on many themes related to our work in community development and international education. We will post 1 or 2 times a month and would love to hear your thoughts, so please reply and offer comments or questions.


We also seek out guest bloggers. Please let us know if you would like to write about any of our themes: community development, international education, arts and social justice, alternative forms of education, fair trade learning, decolonial education, cultural identity, among others.

The views expressed in our blog are those of Pachaysana and our writers and do not necessarily reflect the opinions or identities of our partner communities and organizations.

The Importance of ‘Where’

From Pachaysana: As we move from one semester to the next in our Rehearsing Change program, and think about our international students who recently left us, we post this reflection from Spring 2016 student, Stephanie Kridlo, who just graduated from American University (felicitaciones). Thanks for your thoughts on the very important topic of "where" we do education. When talking about a university education, ‘where’ often takes a backseat. Don’t get me wrong, a gorgeous campus can make or break a college hopeful’s decision. But I’ll bet my money that if all of the best professors moved to Alaska or the best science program was the middle of the Sahara Dessert, students would flock there. Beca
