Spring and Summer 2021 Programming

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Pachaysana has adapted its Spring and Summer 2021 programming.


For Spring 2021, we are offering a flexibly designed virtual study abroad program called "From the Cracks." (Pachaysana was recognized for its Innovation in Online Programming by Go Abroad.)

We are also opening a special Summer 2021 session of Rehearsing Change. This program offers a full load of course credit and is designed for our partners who are opening Summer as a third semester (or special term) as part of their COVID response.

Rehearsing Change: Summer 2021

Working closely with our community partners, we are carefully crafting a Rehearsing Change experience that readily adapts to the realities on the ground, providing the safest experience possible for students and local participants. Additionally, because we have small cohorts, we will work closely with each of the college and university partners with accepted students to adapt our protocols to fit the needs of everyone.

"From the Cracks" 

Virtual Study Abroad

Spring 2021

A flexibly structured and affordable virtual program, "From the Cracks" offers five upper-level courses (two in English, two in Spanish and an independent sudy). Divided into two 7-week modules, Pachaysana faculty join with community-based educators from Ecuador to co-teach the courses, integrating voices and epistemologies from the Global South. Partner schools can choose and contract the courses that they would like to include in their curriculum, or students can Direct Enroll.
