The International Community Development (ICD) minor introduces students to principles and practices for effective service in international community development.
The ICD minor equips students to:

- Live and teach others how to live in under-developed, needy societies (whether in urban or rural settings).

Students will live in a simulated Third-World Village, a training center which empowers students for problem solving and coping skills so that they can effectively serve in developing countries.

- Persons leading work camps or mission ventures to the Third world
