University Trip to Macau Summer of 2011
During the Summer of 2011, Professor Stephen Saravara and 12 students from the Criminology Department took an enriching trip to the Island of Macau. The trip itself was one of the first, and largest trips overseas at UMass Lowell. The primary purpose of the trip was to be able to offer students an affordable way to go overseas, to give students a class that offered 6 credits, could benefit the student that had a security or law enforcement interest and finally to provide a culturally enriching experience for the students. Professor Saravara had lots of support from the Criminology department in setting up the trip.
In all twenty students from the University of Macau, and twelve Umass Lowell Students met over the summer in what would turn out to be a very enriching experience. Another trip is planned for this summer and might possibly be open to Sociology Majors and possibly all students. The core theme of the class was asset protection,which was then broken down to vulnerability assessments and approaches. Students were assigned a buddy from Umass and one from the University of Macau creating groups to take students around. One day every week for four weeks, Professor Saravara and the students were taken on a field trip in which they given a behind the scenes tour of security at larger companies.
