Mexico

Mexico Shoulder to Shoulder incorporates a credit-bearing fall semester course and two weeks on the ground study and service in Mexico during the month of January. The classroom experience immerses students in the study of the history, diverse peoples, and cultures of Mexico, and combines research, presentations, and papers with service on campus. The field experience in Mexico includes individual homestays with Mexican families, intensive manual labor, and reflective intellectual work.
The goal of community service in the cities of Coatepec and Orizaba is not to change Mexico, but to learn from Mexicans about Mexico and about the impact of the United States on our neighbors.

President Alexander Responds to the Tragedy in Orlando  Thursday, June 16, 2016We the people of the United States cherish our freedoms. Whether it be the freedom to say what we want, to assemble in groups of our choosing, to follow the religions of our choice, to vote as our conscience demands, to own and carry weapons, to start new businesses and make money, and to move about as we please -- these are values we hold dear and are reluctant to compromise.
