Journeys welcomes participants from all sectors of the Emory community —undergraduates, graduate students, staff, faculty and alumni. We seek a diverse group, drawing from Emory’s rich array of academic disciplines and religious identities. At its heart, Journeys affirms that barriers of race, religion, nationality, gender, and class can, and ought, to be overcome. The program invites groups to encounter the world’s complexity, to hear stories of pain and liberation, and to seek wisdom outside university walls. Each trip carries the hope that participants will be transformed into more thoughtful and caring citizens of the world.
