Vocational Education at UASPR

Vocational Education is offered through our Extended Internship (EI) programs. These on-campus residency programs prepare the intern for the enhancement of his or her chosen field of interest by offering both academic and experiential knowledge relevant to disseminating these learned life skills to a broader global community.

The vocational extension schools of UASPR are now accepting applications for Fellowship programs providing training in permaculture, sustainable food production, and other areas of study. The unique experience of living on-campus in a spiritual intentional EcoVillage encourages students to discover things about themselves and ask questions of philosophical significance.

Our Fellowships programs provide the resources and hands-on experiences for anyone seeking to be a more responsible global citizen and steward of the environment as well as the wide-ranging tools necessary to train others as teachers of these essential concepts and practices.

Fellowships vary in length, from one month to an indefinite period of time, depending on an individual's interest and flexibility. Our Fellowships offer an intensive, total-immersion educational experience, customized to accommodate the multiple skill levels of every participant.

Fellows are taught to solve real-world problems with effective and practical solutions. We offer the skills and strategic thinking required to find answers for the ecological, economic, and social challenges of today's world. Offered courses are highly interdisciplinary and are designed to impart functional knowledge so the student can then build, grow, or create something of practical importance upon completing their course-work.

While our Fellowships primarily focus on topics relating to organic farming and agriculture, many topics can be included throughout the course of a fellowship, including sustainable construction practices and community living. The diverse aspects of life and industry which are present in the EcoVillage provide Fellows with a unique ability to explore many areas of interest and to modify their program of study as they discover their passions during their time of immersive learning. 

The unique experience of being immersed in a working farm and ranch and spiritual intentional EcoVillage fosters an environment for students to discover latent talents and interests and be inspired to ponder questions of deeper philosophical significance, all the while engendering a spirit of appreciation and awe for the delicate and beautiful world we all call home. When students return to their home communities they feel empowered to apply all they have learned and discovered in order to make a difference in the lives of others.
