The Woodcock Global CSR Fellowship Program allows CPLE students a unique experience to use their business skills to make a difference in an international community. Students are pushed to put their business skills to the test and gain new skills in order to help meet the needs of the local community. The in-country portion of the program will take place over spring break. Students will meet with business owners and community partners to better inform the development of their project. In addition, students will participate in cultural site visits.
