Learn about Detroit Mercy’s Travel to Cuba program

University of Detroit Mercy marks its 10th year of educational travel to Cuba. Several events are scheduled in October to learn about the program, viewing student projects and how to participate in traveling to Cuba during spring break of the 2022-23 academic year.

At 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 5, the School of Architecture & Community Development (SACD) will showcase student projects developed by students who visited Havana, Cuba, Volterra, Italy and Warsaw, Poland. The showcase will take place in the Exhibition Space of the Loranger Architecture Building.

A student panel discussion will take place and samples of cuisine and beverages will be provided.

An informational session on the Travel to Cuba trip will be held Wednesday, Oct. 12 at 6:30 p.m. in the seminar room on the first floor of the Loranger Architecture Building. This informational session is open to the University community, as is the travel to Cuba during spring break. At the sessions, attendees will learn about graduate and undergraduate courses connected to the Cuba trip.

On Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 1 p.m. in the Briggs Building, Room 341, students will have the opportunity to learn about immersion programs offered through the College of Liberal Arts & Education. They’ll also have the opportunity to learn about travel grants that support CLAE-sponsored immersion programs.

Some of these programs include the Cuba and New York trips during spring break, as well as the Travel to India program, which is scheduled for May of 2023 after the current school year ends.
