Administrative Policies and Procedures
The International Service Learning Program (ISLP) is an interdisciplinary activity between several academic colleges, departments, and university units with the intention of providing structured international educational opportunities for students. The foundation of the ISLP is cultural insight, personal balance, ambassadorship, respect, and personal and group reflection.
ISLP is generally built around student breaks in the academic calendar during the spring, summer, and winter periods. Administered by the Division of Student Affairs, the program includes several senior faculty, university staff, students, and a program advisory group as part of the governance structure.
2.0 Overview of ISLP
The University of Louisville International Service Learning Program provides experiential education in which students engage in activities that address human and community needs together with structured opportunities intentionally designed to promote student learning and development. This interdisciplinary program contributes to campus internationalization by infusing the classroom with various cultures to prepare students to be more receptive to global and comparative perspectives.
Learning Objectives for Students
- Integration of academic course content with practical experience in a structured manner will increase students’ critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills.
- Through realistic self-appraisal and reflection, students will demonstrate personal growth through clarification of values and enhanced self-esteem.
- Students will develop an increased sense of social responsibility and appreciation for diversity through an understanding of the social, political, religious, and cultural constructs of the host community.
- Students will learn how their intended career choices may be viewed or practiced in different cultural contexts.
- Students will learn the importance of teamwork, balance, and relationships to achieve satisfying and productive lifestyles.
3.0 Types of Participation
Faculty and staff assume various roles that contribute to the success of the ISLP. Below is a description of the different opportunities.
Program faculty is any faculty member who will be involved directly in the program in a particular discipline and who will be responsible for developing a curriculum and course, teaching the curriculum, participating in orientations, traveling with students, assisting with logistics, coordinating curriculum activities with on-site in-country personnel, and participating in all other functions of the program as determined by the Program Advisory Group (PAG) and the Vice President for Student Affairs. Program faculty are ideally tenured/tenure-track, expected to have a course of record that is available to program participants, and to work as an interdisciplinary team in the management of the program. Generally participation as Program Faculty is funded within the ISLP.
Team Leaders & Logistic Coordinators
Team Leaders provide program oversight for a specific country, work directly with the in-country coordinators, faculty, and the logistics coordinator, and determine the program and orientation workshop schedules.

Each year the faculty will work with community leaders located in the country to devise a curriculum that best meets the needs of the interdisciplinary nature of the program and the needs of the communities within the country. Underlying the work teams and the curriculum is the importance of working as one team, representing one’s profession, university, and country in a positive manner, cultural insight, personal balance, ambassadorship, respect, and personal and group reflection.
Several opportunities are available for participants in the ISLP. Below are examples of such opportunities.
- Meetings with Community Leaders -– Participants and faculty will discuss the program with the community and the community leaders will describe their community and the different issues, needs, and cultural practices.
- Delegation Team -– Participants will join the Vice President for Student Affairs or his delegate as part of the official welcome to the communities the delegation is working with in accordance with local customs and cultures.
- Dental Clinic Logistics -– A small number of participants (dental and non-dental) will set up and dissemble the dental clinic.

8.0 Orientation Workshops
The purpose of the orientation workshops is to provide all participants the skills and competencies needed to engage in an interdisciplinary service-learning program. Participants will better understand their specific roles as service providers to the host country and how best to be a guest in another culture. In addition, participants will become familiar with the host country through the study of its people, cultures, religions, history, political systems, and geography.
Orientation Workshop Attendance
Attendance at the orientation workshops is required for all participants. Any exceptions are at the full discretion of the program faculty and are not recommended.
9.0 Participant Expectations
Participants in ISLP are members of one large delegation that represents the University of Louisville and the United States of America. How individuals behave or react to situations as they arrive will often reflect upon all members of the delegation. For this reason, several participant guidelines are provided for all participants of the program. Although these are limited in number, common courtesies and respect for others should always be displayed.
- Participants are expected to be prepared for each orientation workshop.
- Attendance at the orientation workshops is required for all participants. Any exceptions are at the full discretion of the program faculty and are not recommended.
- Students are expected to complete group and individual assignments on time and with effort and professionalism.
- Students are expected to try to improve interpersonally and professionally through regular contributions in class discussions, consulting tours, exercises, and written and verbal work.
- Students are expected to work as an interdisciplinary team that values the unique individual contributions of each person and discipline.
- Students are expected to be honest and professional in expressing and owning opinions and statements.
- Students are expected to follow University policies on academic integrity.
- The food in another country may not be all that you desire or may want. Be courteous. Except for food allergies there will be no food accommodations provided so please adjust your needs and expectations accordingly.
- Being on time is essential to smooth operations of the program since one individual being tardy can detain the entire group.
- Individuals are not permitted to leave the hotel compound unless they have the permission of their faculty member and are accompanied by their “buddy.”
- Alcoholic gift packages may be purchased at the duty free shops at the airport upon the return flight to the United States.
- Participants are not permitted to operate motor vehicles or golf carts while in another country unless permitted by Team Leader.
- Snorkeling and diving are permitted in designated areas and under local/professional supervision only. Ask if you are not sure of the designated areas.
- It is important to maintain one’s professional distance with the people in the communities. This includes personal commitments and promises, such as inviting individuals to the U.S.
- Under no circumstances is smoking/dipping permitted in or near any hotel or the worksites, regardless of location. Many structures are constructed of wood and the communities have limited fire fighting resources. As a courtesy, please do not smoke when near others participating in the program.
- You are strongly advised to keep money and all valuables in a safe place. Always have your passport with you and safely secured at all times.
- Never surrender your passport – NEVER.
- As necessary, life vests should be worn at all times while in water craft.
- Students are expected to travel with their “faculty group” the entire duration of the program. Late or early arrivals or departures are not permitted. Expect to arrive home two days late. Tell yourself that now. Often there is no rush and no sense in trying to rush. Stay with your faculty group and eventually all things work out.
- Appropriate attire should be worn to orientation workshops. Appropriate attire while in country will be discussed during orientation workshops and may be provided by the ISLP. Many areas within the different countries are very conservative. When in another country it is critical that appropriate attire be worn, including UofL work or casual attire, long khaki pants, dresses (in certain countries), neckties, polo shirts, dress shoes, and tennis or hiking (closed toe) shoes (for excursions). Be professional and good ambassadors.
- When in another country please wear your UofL name badge where appropriate.
- Please never forget that you are in another country and this is an educational experience. Accommodations will not be perfect, schedules will be changed, the weather or terrain may be uncomfortable, dining will be unique, travel schedules will be modified, and many other possible inconveniences will challenge you. Be positive and respectful. Adapt and enjoy. You are not expected to save the region.
- Be mindful that you are a guest in the country and that you are an ambassador of the University of Louisville and the United States of America. Always respect and adhere to the local customs of the country and the communities.
Representing the University of Louisville and the citizens of the United States of America is the utmost privilege and priority as ambassadors to another country. Participants that fail to meet these expectations may be sent home immediately at the student’s expense.
10.0 Travel Information
- Participants will be provided travel information and clothing expectations throughout the orientations workshops for the specific activity and country.
- Local customs may prohibit the wearing of certain items by men or women. Adherence to these customs and being the best ambassador are of utmost consideration. Participants that disrespect local customs, if not jailed, may be immediately sent home at their own expense.
- ISLP provides a limited number of “program luggage bags” to be used to transport program supplies to the country. At the beginning of the orientation workshop, program bags will be distributed to program faculty. It is the responsibility of the program faculty and students to pack and transport the bags, as well as to provide a copy of the manifest listing all bag contents to the Logistics Coordinator no later than 10 days prior to departure. A manifest template will be provided by the ISLP. At the completion of the trip the program bags shall be returned immediately to Student Affairs.
- ISLP travel that involves students is limited to students and university faculty and staff only. Site visits conducted by faculty and staff are generally limited to university faculty and staff only. At the completion of a site visit, faculty and staff are permitted, at the discretion of the Vice President for Student Affairs, to extend their stay at their own expense.
11.0 Food & Beverages
Participants with food allergies may be accommodated within reason. No guarantees are implied and may not always be possible. It is the students’ ultimate responsibility to know what they may and may not eat and what affects that may have on them personally. There will be limited medical assistance. Students must advise the faculty of any food allergies they may have prior to completion of the fourth week of the orientation workshop.
Other food preferences will likely not be accommodated. The group is expected to dine as a group and food will be provided to the group. If participants fail to make a meal there may not be another opportunity to dine until the next scheduled meal. Participants are expected to remain respectful of the local cultures and the local cuisine.
Participants will not be provided any money for additional meals, soft drinks, or snacks. There may be limited opportunities to acquire soft drinks and snacks, depending on the location and the country. Be safe.
Water, coffee/tea, and soft drinks are generally provided by the program at each meal. Alcoholic beverages are at the participants or faculty sole expense. No charges for any item may be charged to individual rooms.
12.0 Safety & Health
Students are generally considered participants in a structured university course. As such, common sense should be used at all times.
- Generally speaking, participants should refrain from eating food from street vendors, frequently wash hands, limit personal contact with others in the communities, refrain from drinking unbottled water, refrain from touching animals and livestock, and do not travel alone at anytime. If in doubt at any time, ask one of the faculty immediately.
- It is common for some participants to become ill from the stresses of travel. Symptoms may include fatigue, headaches, or motion sickness. It is the students responsibility to know if they are susceptible to these symptoms and to bring appropriate and adequate medication.
- Participants must meet the minimum required vaccination protocol for the respective country. The program will cover the cost of required immunizations for students who arrange for immunizations through the ISL office. Program faculty, faculty scholars, staff, and administrators are responsible for the cost of their immunizations.
- Emergency information is collected during the ISLP orientation workshops. Medical facilities may be very limited throughout ISLP countries. Participants should consult with their medical provider and take whatever precautions that may be necessary prior to departure. If required, participants will be restricted from travel or participation. Participants facing a severe problem during an ISL trip, and if medical facilities are not available or inadequate, may be transported back to the United States.
13.0 Forms and Administration
Upon completion of the ISLP application, and acceptance into the program, there are various travel documents that will need to be submitted to the ISLP Office prior to departure. Many of these items will be processed or facilitated during the orientation workshops.

14.0 Academic Dishonesty
Academic integrity is at the core of the educational mission of the institution. Students are expected to conduct themselves with honesty and forthrightness in all academic and personal interactions within the University community, United States, and host country.
A student who enrolls at the University must conduct himself/herself in a manner compatible with the university's function as an education institution. Consequently, conduct that offends the core mission of education is strictly prohibited. Academic dishonesty is a general term for actions that are not representative of the student's own work or in keeping with the directives of the faculty member assigning course work. Some of the more common forms (not a comprehensive list) of academic dishonesty are: cheating, plagiarism, collusion, theft of or misuse of any course material or testing material, the submission for credit of any work or materials that are attributable in whole or in part to another person, taking an examination for another person, and any act designed to give unfair advantage to a student or the attempt to commit such acts. Students are strongly encouraged to review the University policies on academic integrity.
15.0 Accommodations for Students with Disabilities
Students having difficulty with any of the materials (including differently-abled students such as documented learning disabilities, vision or hearing impairments, or physical disabilities) must contact the Vice President for Student Affairs immediately, no later than the conclusion of the first orientation session if accommodations are required. Students should also contact the Disabilities Resource Center during business hours to submit appropriate documentation and register for special accommodations. Given the international nature and physical demands of the actual trip to another country, not all abilities may be accommodated.
16.0 Program Accreditation
The International Serviced Learning Program will emphasize equal emphasis on service and learning. Students may obtain a minimum of three academic credits for fulfilling the requirements as stipulated in the syllabi presented by program faculty. Accreditation for participating in the program is the responsibility of the program faculty and his/her department and will be in accordance with the department policies.
Based on departments and university policies and requirements the course may apply to the following:
