These trips are a great opportunity for students to meet and speak with people who may hold similar or very different social views than your own.

Funded by generous friends of the College, these trips (offered every other year) provide an immersive multiday experience engaging political and social diversity. We will be planning our next trip when the pandemic allows for travel; stay tuned for details!
