The Environmental Management and Sustainability in Taiwan program is a five-week summer program taking place in Taipei and Nantou, Taiwan, for two and three weeks, respectively. Cal Poly students will have an opportunity to learn about contemporary environmental challenges ranging from community to global levels. The course will be housed in two collaborative institutes, National Taipei University of Technology (NTUT, Taipei) and National Chi-Nan University (NCNU, Nantou), with additional field trips to explore environmental and social characteristics challenging sustainable development. By attending this program, Cal Poly students will have an opportunity to intensively interact with bilingual Taiwanese students (peer advisors and student volunteers) through group activities during their stay in Taiwan.
