In order to begin reaching this goal, we created an intercultural experience for Animal Sciences students that combined two high impact practices (study abroad and Learning Communities). Students participated in a 10-day summer program studying animal agriculture in northern Italy and then an on-campus course during the fall semester. This presentation discusses the methods and findings for student intercultural development and empathy assessment.
