The Puebla-Alberta Community Service Exchange (PACSE) is the successor to the award-winning Augustana RDX exchange.

Students join counterparts from the Universidad de las Americas, Puebla (UDLA), for a 5-month, 18-credit comparative study in sustainable rural development. The first half of the exchange focuses on initiatives in rural Mexico aimed at community vitality. In the second half, students are transported to rural Alberta to complete the comparative study of community sustainability in rural contexts.


Please note that the Puebla-Alberta Community Service Exchange is no longer being offered.


This video podcast, Fireworks in Santa Lucia: A language of its own, was produced by PACSE students Chelsea Halvorson, Mark Prescott and Daniel Francois 'Paco' Hugo
