The first of its kind at Marquette, this is an interfaith immersion experience for Marquette students to learn in depth about Muslim American life. On this five day trip we will travel to Dearborn and Hamtramck, Michigan [near Detroit], places with the largest Muslim population in the U.S. We will learn about Islam, and more importantly, about being Muslim in the U.S. at this point in history.
The trip will take place in March (during Marquette's spring break).
Student applications are due by December 30th. All travel, hotel, and food expenses are paid by Marquette, however participants are asked to contribute a $200 “co-pay.” Upon return, we hope students will become active agents in engaging Muslims and countering Islamophobia. Please contact Dr. Louise Cainkar with any questions.
