Dr. Lori Blanc

The quality of my study abroad program, which focuses on sustainability & conservation-based service learning, is greatly enhanced by our partnership with Kuaka.

Doug Farr has extensive knowledge of the history, culture and ecology of the region, & a rich network of established relationships within the local communities. His passion for investing in people, his genuine care for the student experience, & his willingness to work closely with me to align our field experience with my academic curriculum & learning objectives, combine to form a deeply transformative experience for all of us.

My students love working with Doug, & so do I!
