Canisius alumni are invited to visit the once-forbidden land of Cuba this winter, as the Institute for Global Engagement (IGE) resumes its “Road Less Traveled” pilgrimage program.

The trip to Havana, scheduled for January 1-13, 2019 will explore the history of the Cuban Revolution and how Fidel Castro’s Jesuit education impacted his thinking and the social justice movements of the revolution. Participants will also be immersed in the hybrid culture of Cuba that is reflected in its cuisine, music, religious practices, art and architecture.

The cost for the trip is $3,200* and includes airfare, room and board through homestays, guide service and translation. (*Cost may vary if participants opt for special room requests or different air travel accommodations.)
