Upcoming Service Immersion programs that give students the opportunity to practice the Franciscan value of showing compassion on a global scale.
Dates and locations will be announced by the Office of International Education every semester.
These programs are open to adults world-wide. The intent is to immerse ourselves in the Franciscan culture of the places we visit, and to further our global awareness and competence. They also offer a balance of sightseeing, reflection, personal growth, and a sense of community as we come to know one another across countries, and begin to see the world from a different and richer perspective.
The programs include a variety of experiences influenced by the interests of the participants and the many personal connections of our hosts. Visits to Franciscan sites all serve to develop relationships and cross-cultural learning, which help us understand common and disparate issues within our global environment.
