Twelve students and faculty who recently returned from a UVM winter-break course in the Dominican Republic will share the highlights of the trip on Jan. 27 at 4 p.m. in 104 Aiken.
Students initiated the class, which focused on a HIV/AIDS education and community development pilot project with the Batey Libertad Coalition.

Associate Professor Jon Erickson of the Rubenstein School for Environment and Natural Resources led the course.
