Campus Ministry would like to invite faculty or staff to accompany students in a service-learning immersion experience to the U.S./Mexico Border this May.

This annual experience partners with the Kino Border Initiative and offers participants an opportunity to spend time with migrants and asylum seekers, learn from their stories, and understand the broader context of the border situation and migration. 

The faculty/staff role would involve being a chaperone for the student group, driving a rental van in Arizona, and being a full participant in activities and reflections during the week. The group will fly from the Buffalo airport to Tucson, AZ on the morning of Saturday May 18, and return to Buffalo by evening on Friday May 24. The group will spend time on both the U.S. side and Mexico side of the border, so a valid passport is required for this experience. Any Spanish language skills are a benefit but not required. 

Please reach out to Spencer Liechty, director of Campus Ministry, by February 20 to express interest or for any questions.
