Purdue students go global with service projects

“From Kenya to South Africa to Ecuador, Purdue University students are using the skills they learn in the classroom to help others around the world.

Kim Wilson, a professor of horticulture and landscape architecture, will travel with 12 students to Ecuador on May 19. She says they hope to complete some of the design projects previous classes worked on during the past four years.

“A new government was elected this year, and there is money to implement a few of the sustainable designs in the rainforest village of San Miguel, including a boat ramp and central open space,” Wilson said. “Also, Bahia de Caraquez would like us to continue with their waterfront design along the Pacific Coast.”
