“Get On Board”: Summer 2023 program for undergraduate students
For two weeks in Summer 2023 a group of undergraduate students, faculty, and staff will embark from the Williams-Mystic campus in Mystic, Connecticut on a unique living-learning experience centered on community engagement and social justice. Aboard the schooner Harvey Gamage participants will travel along the Northeastern coast to meet with members of Indigenous, African-American, and Afro-Indigenous communities. They will engage in learning and conversations about communities’ historic, current, and future work in activism and organizing, social justice work, education, and creative pursuits. The emphasis is on meeting communities where they are, being in shared spaces of mutual learning, and developing capacities for justice-oriented work and relationship-building after the program’s conclusion.
More information about this opportunity, including application, will be posted in this space in late Fall 2022.
