On Tuesday, November 5th, the Office of International Education hosted 2 visitors from Ireland whose mission of the Institute of Study Abroad in Ireland is to provide authentic cultural and educational experiences in Ireland for community colleges with a focus on conflict resolution and peace studies. John O’Connell and Niamh Hamill spoke in Robert Brem’s Comparative Government class at College of Alameda, as well as met with Laney staff and faculty to discuss future collaborations on bringing students to Ireland.

A typical study trip to Ireland with the Institute of Study Abroad Ireland is between 8 and 16 days in Ireland. Many lead faculty and global studies advisers begin the process by joining one of our site visits or professional development trips to Ireland. These short trips are an excellent way to prepare for a future study trip.

Each study trip is tailored to the requirements of the faculty and institution. We will design a program that will be a relevant and effective course component. This may be an interdisciplinary program, or it may be focused on a particular field of studies. Either way, our expert lecturers will work with you until the study program has the learning outcomes you require. Our team will make sure that the classroom work, field trips, cultural activities, meals and accommodation are all coordinated for you, that the program is academically robust and professional, safe, enjoyable and affordable.
