Environmental Leadership Experience

Program Description May 12-19, 2024

A 7-day experiential program for Barry University and Siena Heights students to learn about sustainable agricultural ecosystems in Adrian, Michigan. Through the lens of environmental stewardship, the program will offer hands on activities at the Adrian Dominican Motherhouse Permaculture site, with service trips and day trips to local points of interest. Students selected to participate in this summer experience are expected to implement sustainability initiatives at their universities upon completion of the 7-day program.

Trip Costs: Travel, Housing and Meals are covered through the generosity of the Adrian Dominican Sisters, so there is no expense for students who are accepted to participate.
