Eleven undergraduate students, led by Dr. Susan White, traveled to Nicaragua during summer 2013 as part of a new University of Maryland study abroad program that combines entrepreneurship with service learning. The students worked and lived in rural areas helping develop and promote small businesses that provide essential products at affordable prices, including eyeglasses, energy efficient stoves, and water filters. The students will present their experiences, ranging from the types of consulting they delivered, to the clients with whom they worked, to the homestay environments.

A networking reception with hors d'oeuvres will be held from 8:30-9 p.m. following the students’ presentations.
