As a six-month global service-learning program, the edge provides a holistic learning environment. Students are challenged by the difficulties of moving through culture shock in an unfamiliar environment. The pressures of daily team life combine with a demanding course load. The edge is difficult.
Students who emerge from the edge come out as changed people—more mature, humble, and confident. The edge simultaneously increases one’s tolerance for ambiguity and one’s ability to initiate. Students find themselves to be more honest and open with themselves and in their relationship to Christ.
edge teams of four to eight students live, study, and minister together and complete up to 19 credit hours of intercultural and service-based coursework. University professors, qualified host organization personnel and local leaders serve as instructors.
On the International Track in Mali, West Africa students will take subjects such as World’s Living Religions, French, and Context & Mission.
