University Student Programs

MERC and Prescott College have built an approach to immersive and collaborative study in Maasailand that demonstrates our commitment to decolonizing education. The program is not typical “field studies” in that students work with Maasai community activists on projects designed by the community, and we work hard to make it affordable to be more broadly inclusive.

Prescott College Semester in Maasailand

University students can enroll in Prescott College’s Spring Semester in Maasailand which runs from mid February to the end of April and the class includes both PC students from the U.S. and Maasai students training to be field guides.

Global Resolve at ASU

The Global Resolve program of the Barrett Honors College at Arizona State University has worked closely with MERC and Prescott College since 2017 to explore education that leads to community based development.

Other University Programs

The Dopoi Center is happy to welcome other university programs to use the facility, to bring your own faculty and curriculum and set up your own activities; we are also happy to work with you to develop a program drawing on our relationships and resources.
