A brief description of the sustainability-focused immersive experience(s) offered by the institution:

The AguaClara Project at Cornell provides students with hands-on experience in the research, design, implementation, and promotion of small-scale, ecologically and economically sustainable technologies for drinking water treatment systems that can operate without an external power source and be maintained by rural communities in the Global South.

Thus far, students have helped construct eight water plants, serving more than 32,000 people in Honduras. Course credit and internships are available.
