The Beyond Borders program provides an opportunity for students to have a perspective-shifting encounter with new people, vibrant cultures, and with themselves. It allows students to discover alternative perspectives, realities and ways of life. Beyond Borders’ praxis is rooted in the values of Catholic Social Teaching and thus pushes students to build community, practice solidarity, and to respect and engage with the dignity of all people. It is a chance to be fully immersed in development and social justice issues and witness them through a new lens.?
