J-Term VISION trips have spots available for faculty, staff

Spots are available for staff and faculty who are interested in being advisers on a J-Term VISION trip.

VISION (Volunteers in Service Internationally or Nationally) applications can be picked up in Room 153, Murray-Herrick Campus Center, or at the information session from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 20, in Room 152, Murray-Herrick Campus Center.

The information session is an opportunity to learn more about the VISION program, the sites it will visit during J-Term, and the role of staff and faculty advisers.

For over 20 years VISION has sent more than 2,500 students and dozens of staff to locations around the world. The program is based on the six components of service, simplicity, spirituality, community, cultural exchange and justice issues.

Sites this January with open staff and faculty spots include San Lucas, Guatemala; San Felix, Venezuela; Belfast, Northern Ireland; the Texas-Mexico border; and Jinja, Uganda.

Applications are due Friday, Sept. 28; applicants will undergo an interview process. Questions can be directed to Stephanie Edquist or Greg Schieber.
