International Education Office leading African safari
Aug. 1-14, 2000
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The International Education Office
at the University of Iowa College of Education is sponsoring an African safari
Aug. 1-14, 2000, for educators, students and the public.
Paul Retish, director of the International Education
Office, said registration is limited to 15 people and only a few slots remain
open. However, if enough people show interest in the next week or two, he
said its possible arrangements could be made for a second group.
The tour, which will include visits to African schools
in Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa, is designed primarily to help educators
improve their curricula and better teach students about the country. Up to
eight semester hours of college credit can be earned and financial aid is
available to eligible UI students. Other activities will include nature and
large-animal viewing, bird watching, sightseeing and photo opportunities.
The cost of the trip, which includes airfare, is $4,600.
A $500 deposit is required.
