Ghana is a Go!
The global COVID-19 pandemic impacted study abroad programs across the nation, but now, we are back! During summer 2022, Amadou Sall, director of our Ghana study abroad program, received a green light to travel to Ghana. For many years, he has led study abroad trips to various countries, Senegal, South Africa, and Ghana (since 2005), which was the first country he and students visited. To celebrate the return of this program, we share with you photos from previous trips. In summer 2023, Sall developed a pilot experience for Knoxville community members to travel to Ghana for an educational and cultural immersion. Co-sponsored by the Division for Diversity and Engagement, with the assistance of the Center for Global Engagement, the participants had a transformative international experience. They will be sharing their experiences to encourage others to study abroad in Ghana and Africa. We thank them for their support.
