AS OF AUGUST 2016:
Please note the U.S. Department of State Travel Warning for Mexico, which includes destinations for 3 Arrupe trips. The Arrupe Program will continue to monitor conditions in Mexico to make a travel determination in the coming months. Please read below for more information.
SAFETY AS A PRIORITY
We with Campus Ministry and the Arrupe Program consider the safety of each traveling delegation an absolute priority. We not only consider the U.S. Department of State’s assessment of travel in a particular country, we also are in constant communication with our long-time trusted In-Country Partner Organizations (ICPs). We have been working closely with most of our ICPs for at least 5 years, and many of them for more than 15 years. We choose to collaborate with organizations that not only understand our education and formation philosophy and vision, but are clear about making safety and health an absolute priority. Each organization has a network of people living and working in the places we visit who understand the political climate, and know not to venture into particular places or situations that could pose a risk or threat to the traveling delegation. Additionally, our ICPs have safety and health protocols that complement our expectations and the training we conduct for our leaders and the resources we provide them.
