Experience Report

Testimonial Video: Most Memorable Experience

The purpose of the Experience Report is to document the depth and quality of your cultural immersion and to initiate a process of reflection. The Experience Report should give the reader a sense of what you accomplished, not what you saw. Components of your Experience Report will be turned in to the Heinz Endowments and may be posted on the VIH website.

You should discuss your Experience Report  with your campus coordinator prior to September 1st and then email your finalized Experience Report to both your campus coordinator as well as to the program director.

The Experience Report has several components: a budget, your answers to the short answer questions (250-350 words per question), a paragraph written in third person, your cultural matrix, your goals and action plans, and five photos saved in jpg format.  Your jpg photos should be emailed to both your Campus Coordinartor and to the Program Director. Please do not embed the photos in your Experience Report word document. You are also welcome to share your photos with your cohort by uploading them to the Vira Heinz Program for Women in Global Leadership Facebook page. If you do not have Facebook, simply email your photos to your Campus Coordinator and to the Program Director.  To be sure, at least one of the photos must be of you, in country.  

In addition, you are welcome to upload your experience report and photos to your VIH E-portfolio.  Should you choose to upload your Experience Report to the VIH E-portfolio, you must still email it to both your Campus Coordinator as well as to the Program Director.
