Between June 18th and June 28th 2013, fifteen students from Oregon State University, The University of Oregon, and Portland State University traveled together to Cuba on an educational excursion. The highlight of this ten day action learning experience was being able to observe, listen and talk to Cubans about their social, political and economic life. In Havana the students had an active daily program of study that included lectures by Cuban scholars, visits to art galleries, museums, and other sites of historical and cultural interest. Some of these locations included: the Museo de la Revolucion and Granma Monument; Center for the Study of Che Guevara; The Ministry of the Interior Museum; The Federation of Cuban Women; The University of Havana; La Cabaña Fortress; Havana Vieja; José Martí birthplace museum; Plaza de la Revolución; and The National Arts Museum. The group also spent two days in Varadaro researching the impact of tourism on Cuban society.
