CAMPUS PROFILE 

Ecuador, to spend a week working at a
mobile cataract surgery clinic, where he
was part of a team that performed 128
cataract surgeries. He received $2,500
to cover the cost of his airfare and
lodging.
Aslam says that the fellowship was
instrumental in his ability to travel. "A
grant like this allows us to expand our
training, our experiences, and helps
mold our understanding of what we
want to go into. The fellowship provided me with funding to broaden my
perspective on medicine," he says.
In addition to providing funding for students to create their own
"transformative experiences," NYIT
also offers a number of servicelearning opportunities abroad. For
example, the Office of Career Services
organizes an alternative spring break
that enabled junior Anthony Holloway
to travel to Rivas, Nicaragua, with
nine other students to work on a project aimed at improving water quality
in the community.
"I had never left the country
before," says Holloway, an interdisciplinary studies major.

classroom, and programs for international students.

His Korea program has been so successful that the School of
Management will be launching a similar program next summer

The School of Architecture and Design also has a wide variety

Approximately 24-40 students participate in these programs per year.
Assistant Professor Farzana Gandhi has worked with a group of
students to redesign beach architecture in Puerto Rico and led a program to India that examined the need for affordable mass housing.
Many of her courses are focused on social impact design and seek
socially and environmentally conscious solutions to global problems
