A collaborative program of the VSLC and Intersections


The Nicaragua faculty and staff immersion trip was established in the summer of 2003 under the leadership of Dan Leahy, of Campus Ministry. Today the program is co-sponsored by the Volunteer & Service Learning Center and Intersections. The trip is coordinated through the Center for Global Education. Take a moment to read comments from past participants, and view team rosters from past years.


The goals of the program are threefold:  

  1. To provide an international experience for faculty and staff that explores global justice issues in the context of a developing nation;

  2. To further participants’ understanding of how issues of human development, justice and faith are linked in the Jesuit mission in higher education;

  3. To encourage participants to find ways of integrating these themes into their own life and their work at Boston College


If you are a faculty member or administrator at Boston College and would like to be considered for a team, please contact the Intersections Office at extension 2-6140.
