Study Abroad as Inspiration
for Transforming Lives
A STUDY ABROAD EXPERIENCE can have a ripple effect-it

has the power to not only change the life of a student or faculty member going abroad, but it can change the lives of countless others when
the experience inspires action for social change.
"Toward a Better World," this issue's cover story, is about how social
justice internships abroad can inspire ideas among students and faculty
that-when put into action-can transform lives. Several inspirational
stories are included in this article. Ryan Sarafolean was student the University of Minnesota when he studied interned abroad in Kenya. He was so
moved by the need of girls for an education that he returned to Kenya to
start the Kibera Girls Soccer Academy. Unite for Sight, which was founded
in 2000, was the vision of Jennifer Staple-Clark, who was then a sophomore at Yale University. Today Unite for Sight trains between 250 and 300
Global Impact Fellows each year, many of whom are university students,
and they are sent as interns to assist the ophthalmologists in five eye clinics
in Ghana, as well as one in Honduras and three in India. Unite for Sight's
teams have reached more than 2 million people and have provided more
than 93,000 sight-restoring surgeries. Pepperdine University's Global Justice Program sends law students to various parts of the developing world
for the summer where they may work as interns with judicial systems or
nongovernmental organizations. The program was started by an idea from
a law student in 2005 who wanted to go to Uganda to help provide pro
bono legal assistance to children caught without representation in prison
detention centers. A couple of years later, the Global Justice Program was
established, which has ultimately changed Ugandan law and introduced
plea bargaining into the criminal justice system.
James Gash, professor of law and director of Pepperdine University's Global Justice Program, first traveled to Uganda himself in January
2010 with Pepperdine law students at the urging of a student. That trip
led to a chance meeting with a teenager named Henry-Gash knew
immediately there was no way he could have committed murder. For
the next five years, Gash worked on Henry's case to ultimately prove his
innocence and secure his freedom. In the first-person essay in this issue,
"Justice for All: Study Abroad Leads to Legal Reform in Uganda," Gash
chronicles his journey about how going abroad as a faculty member led
to him becoming the first non-African to appear in court in Uganda as
an attorney on behalf of a Ugandan and exonerating Henry, who is now
a medical student at Kampala University in Uganda.
Other select highlights of this issue include articles about recruiting
students from India, increasing diversity in education abroad, welcoming women students from the Middle East on U.S. campuses, and
an opinion piece, "Beyond Foreign Languages: Foreign Language as a
Global Competency in International Education."
