Immersions are experiences that allow students to learn more about a community, immerse themselves in a culture, and understand the implications of social issues. One part of the immersion experience offers Loyola community members an opportunity to spend academic breaks (winter, spring, summer) immersed in a community (locally, domestically, and internationally). Students engage in dialogue and reflection about justice and what it means to be an Ignatian Citizen.
- In-depth preparation, education, and community building
- Community-based learning experiences and/or direct service with a community-based organization
- Reflection activities and group dialogue
- Commitment to related advocacy, engagement and on-going learning
Each immersion has its own different participant fee to cover transportation, food, housing, educational activities, and incidental expenses.
During the 2023-24 Academic Year, we will only be offering the Kino Border Initiative Immersion on migration at the Arizona-Mexico border.
