Students can now apply for immersion experiences that will take place in Jan. 2022, according to Inside JCU. During the 2019-20 academic year, Ray Flannery ‘22 joined Campus Ministry on its immersion trip to El Salvador and the U.S.-Mexico border. This immersion gave students the opportunity to learn about the experiences of migrants and how JCU students can work for justice.
