A sexual health study in the Dominican Republic. Federal water policy in Mexico City. A bus rapid transit line through Nairobi, Kenya.
These are just three of the projects that UCLA Luskin students will be tackling this summer as they live and work in countries around the world. Most of the students travel under the auspices of the International Practice Pathway program, the experiential component of the School’s Global Public Affairs initiative that’s intended to expose students to a broad range of policy and practice in communities around the world.
No matter what facilitates their travel, every student working abroad this summer is driven by their innate curiosity about the world and motivated to better understand their circumstances and themselves. This year’s students are:
- Sandra Bernabe (Social Welfare), Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
- Humberto Castro (Urban Planning), Mexico City, Mexico
- Carmen Chen (Urban Planning), Istanbul, Turkey
- Shafaq Choudry (Urban Planning), Panama City, Panama
- Cally Hardy (Urban Planning), India
- Jason Karpman (Urban Planning), Chiang Mai, Thailand
- Mohan Khidia (Urban Planning), India
- Joseph Lawlor (Urban Planning), Hyderabad, India
- Maritza Lee (Urban Planning), Hyderabad, India
- David Leipziger (Urban Planning), Nairobi, Kenya
- Katie Merill (Social Welfare), Geneva, Switzerland
- Marissa Sanchez (Urban Planning), Panama City, Panama
- Ryan Sclar (Urban Planning), Chengdu, China

The students will be blogging about their experiences on the UCLA Luskin Abroad blog.
