Participant Application Process

SIP Experiences will take place in during Spring Break, March 5-March 11, 2023 and late Spring, tentatively during the week of May 7-13, 2023.

Applications for student participants are OPEN and available on OwlConnect until 11/1/2022.

Upon application review, some students may be selected to join staff and student Experience Leaders for a brief, informal interview.

Teams will meet on a weekly basis in the 6 weeks prior to travel to build an intentional learning community, provide context for the travel location and the social justice topic, develop an increased sense of self-awareness, and to cover logistical details.

Each participant will pay a $400 program fee, depending on location, which will go towards the cost of most meals, transportation, program, and health & safety supplies. More information about program fees will be shared with participants upon selection. If the cost is prohibitive, connect with Assistant Director of Student Activities, Mat Greer for financial support consideration.
