During January 2018, Dr. Candace M. Moore, Faculty Director of the Higher Education in the Ghanaian Context (HEGC!) study abroad program, with Dr. Jillian A. Martin, Co-Instructor for HEGC!, led a group of graduate students/higher education staff to Ghana for eleven days guiding participants worldview to expand beyond Western ideals of social justice education and engaged participants in a critical examination of concepts related to power, privilege, and oppression through their engagement with Ghanaian culture, the country’s approach to higher education, and specially the role of student affairs and assessment practices in the context of Ghanaian higher education. 

The event is co-sponsored by the Commission for the Global Dimensions of Student Development of ACPA College Student Educators International.
