This hybrid study center/direct enroll program allows students to study race, identity, and ethnicity with an emphasis on Afro-Colombian culture. Students with any Spanish-speaking level will develop their skills through Spanish coursework and daily life in Cali, a diverse city in eastern Colombia. On this program, students will share an apartment with other CET students as well as a local Colombian student who can help with adapting to Cali. A traveling seminar will introduce students to other parts of Colombia through the framework of race and identity. 

CET Colombia will offer the course 'Coffee in Colombia: A Commodity With History,' exploring the history and realities of Colombian coffee growing from different dimensions. This course was developed in collaboration with the Coffee Equity Lab at the Wond'ry
