Kalamazoo College: Sustainable Development Studies, Thailand Charity Profile
The International Sustainable Development Studies Institute (ISDSI) is an initiative of the Center for International Programs at Kalamazoo College. The Institute exists to help develop experiential educational programs with other schools, organizations or groups. In addition to our core semester length program, People Environment and Development, we also host a number of short term (multi-week) study-abroad, service-learning and related programs.
ISDSI is a part of The Foundation for Experiential Learning, a non-profit educational foundation established by Kalamazoo College in Thailand to help support the development of innovative experiential learning internationally.
While Northern Thailand remains our base, ISDSI Expedition Field Courses take place throughout Thailand--from remote islands in the Andaman sea to dense urban cities like Bangkok
The International Sustainable Development Studies Institute (ISDSI) is a recognized leader in innovative study-abroad programs.
In 2005 ISDSI's People Environment and Development program was recognized as one of three "best practice" programs by the Institute of International Education (IIE) Andrew Heiskell Awards, and in 2006 was nominated as a UNESCO Centre of Excellence.
ISDSI developed the People, Ecology and Development program with Kalamazoo College, widely recognized as one of the top schools in the US for study abroad, and ranked #1 for its study abroad programs in US News & World Report 2003 America's Best Colleges.
We run the most comprehensive study-abroad programs in Thailand, with courses in every major region of the country, from the Northern mountains to the islands of Southern Thailand.
