One of the longest-running Saint Ignatius mission trips, the D.R. provides students with a physically demanding but tremendously impactful experience. Participants learn about the history and culture of this Caribbean island nation, work in a Haitian batey and explore the City of Santiago. The highlight of the trip is a 10-day stay in a rural campo, where students work on a major project (often digging latrines) and are housed by a local family. This trip is coordinated through Creighton University’s Institute for Latin American Concern.
