We offer three types of off-campus, short-term experiential trips which offer learning experiences in which you'll engage in local communities and develop as a global citizen.
As a result of participating in Stetson University's experiential trips, you'll:
- Develop hands-on problem solving skills
- Develop an understanding of the the value of teamwork
- Develop positive relationships with your peers
- Critically analyze your growth during the experience
