The UCOR 3600/3800 course "Sustainability in Nicaragua" is a 5 credit course that takes place in Nicaragua over 3 weeks in the summer. Students examine from close range the extremely difficult issues faced by communities in Nicaragua impacted by environmental resource use and management decisions as they explore community based solutions to sustainable resource management. The course consists of a mixture of guest lectures and learning activities in Managua and field excursions to sites chosen to maximize student exposure to the strengths of the UCA faculty that allow them to examine the challenges of ecological as well as social and economic sustainability.
