HECUA offers off-campus academic programs that provide students opportunities to do integrative intellectual, political, and artistic work in support of movements for social justice, peace, and environmental sustainability in the U.S. and abroad.


Our Vision

Informed by a deep respect for the knowledge of communities most impacted by injustice, HECUA’s programs envision students, teachers, and community members as co-learners and co-creators.


What We Do

HECUA designs credit-earning programs for college undergraduates, employing a philosophy of education that speaks openly of values of justice in our classrooms and communities.

During their semester abroad or off-campus here in the United States, HECUA students build the skills, knowledge, and networks they need to be engaged citizens and active changemakers.

Students apply what they learn in the classroom to their work in the field, spending up to 200 hours in a supported internship developed by their host organization.

HECUA faculty and internship supervisors work as co-teachers, helping students explore the link between theory and practice.
