Notre Dame Travel Experiences

Notre Dame offers a variety of faculty/staff directed travel experiences throughout the year that help students develop as global citizens, strengthen their cultural awareness and extend their learning beyond the classroom.


Types of trips:


Justice Immersion develops global citizenship through human relationships and creates understandings of solidarity and compassion between individuals and communities. Immersion moves people to confront essential questions of peace and justice, freedom, and the human condition. For more information go to the Campus Ministry, Justice Immersion page.


Cultural/Educational Immersion develops global citizenship through opportunities to experience the unique culture of travel destinations; practice language skills; experience first-hand of works of art, literature or drama studied in the classroom.
