University of Arkansas students interested in taking part in the education programs scheduled during the spring Study Abroad trip to Belize are invited to attend an informational meeting from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 12, in Room 206 of Peabody Hall.

Faculty in the College of Education and Health Professions will lead projects to include teaching literacy skills to local students. The U of A students will also learn about the country's culture and visit historical and cultural places in Belize. They will receive 6 hours of course credit.

The U of A has led the service-learning project in Belize since 2006. More information is available on the Office of Study Abroad & International Exchange website.
