Our films, papers we've published and press coverage

We care deeply about sustainability, experiential learning, and study abroad.

As a part of that we’ve been writing about and sharing what we know.  This page pulls together resources about ISDSI, including films, papers and media coverage.

A good way to get familiar with ISDSI is to go through our website, read about our courses and programs,  and check out any attached PDFs of syllabi and course materials.
