Summer Term in Indonesia
The International Field Study Program-Indonesia (IFSP-Indonesia) is an interdisciplinary educational program established in 1995 in collaboration with the Pusat Studi Satwa Primata (Primate Research Center, PSSP) at the Institut Pertanian Bogor (Bogor Agricultural University, IPB) in Bogor, West Java, Indonesia. The program is designed to provide field-based educational, training, and research opportunities for individuals interested in conservation psychology, animal behavior, primatology, environmental science, and global health. Through a formal agreement between Central Oregon Community College and the PSSP-IPB, students, staff, and professionals from COCC and partnering institutions (e.g., Trinity University, College of Coastal Georgia) may participate in the Indonesia Field Study Program conducted at PSSP-IPB affiliated field sites and facilities in Indonesia.
