Mission Statement

This travel seminar is not intended to help us fully capture or live the immigrant experience. That, after all, is impossible. We can, however, use our experience to remind ourselves and others of the complexity of what it is like to exist in the borderlands. We intend to interact with those inhabiting this space and  empathize with them in order to share our experience with the larger Kenyon community and raise awareness about the issue. Our purpose is to remind people that this is happening; that we can’t always hide within our limited perspectives and become passive to the issues that are affecting our lives and the lives of those around us.
