WIP meets weekly on MONDAY's from 8:00pm - 9:30pm, in both Fall AND Spring semesters 

Weekly community gatherings (day and time) will NOT change! If you would like to be part of WIP, ensure to keep Mondays from 8:00pm - 9:30pm free 

1. The Winter Immersion program is more than a week-long immersion. Rather, it is a 2 semester program that invites you into the mission and into a loving and inclusive community.  We work hard to create engaging and thought-provoking prep and integration content that will assist you in understanding language and education around the injustice of ALL WIP immersion sites. We also aim to guide you in deepening your faith or spirituality through reflection, prayer, and group activities.

2. You will be on site at your immersion location for approximately 7 days

3. All faith backgrounds are welcome to participate and deepen their personal faith and spirituality. For you to make the best decision for you, please know WIP is a faith-based program rooted in Gospel values, Jesuit ideals, Catholic Social Teaching principles, liberation theology, and the integration of faith and justice. Prayer, discussion, and reflection experiences are central to the program.  

4.WIP upholds imago dei, which states every person is made in the image of God. WIP also upholds the human dignity of every single participant. The Winter Immersion Program is supportive and active on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

5. Please read the WIP 2023 community commitment when it is made available.
