Dr Jayasinhji Jhala, Associate Professor of Anthropology at Temple University will teach the courses. Local academics,  religious leaders and experts as well as performers of art, music, theatre, painting, sculpture will be invited to address and instruct the students. The course is envisioned to be an opportunity for experiential learning and students will have unique opportunity to engage in a safe and nurturing environment.
