Abstract/Description: The Global Peace Exchange (GPE) Nepal Project has been developed over several years of constant hard work and dedication by undergraduate students at Florida State University (FSU). This paper serves as a brief introduction to development in Nepal, a history of GPE's three years of project development in Nepal, and a critical review of and reflection on the turbulent nature of this history. At the root of GPE Nepal's frustrations is the high turnover rate of undergraduate volunteers and the lack of procedural standardization within GPE as a whole. This paper suggests that all members of GPE embrace the social capital that exists within the academic population at FSU and that all members consider the posterity of GPE when completing and documenting the annual processes of recruitment, training, project development, and project execution.
