Immersion participants engage in in-depth preparation and education on campus and direct learning and relationship building opportunities with community-based organizations. The learning experience includes education about community and justice issues, group reflection before, during, and after the travel experience, and engaging in advocacy and active citizenship in ways related to the issues and communities encountered.
Participants are a part of an immersion team of 8 – 10 participants and trained Immersion Peer Facilitator(s) who are responsible for logistics, support, and peer education. University Employees serve as Immersion Mentors to support both the participants and the Immersion Peer Facilitator as well as to provide a multi-generational perspective on community issues.
