In order to begin reaching this goal of student cultural literacy, the research team 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.
