Peru - Mercer on Mission

July 19-26, 2014

Serve others and reconnect with Mercer through the Mercer On Mission experience for alumni! In 2007, Mercer began to offer students this unique study abroad option, which is a culmination of service learning and travel abroad. Service learning is a pillar of Mercer's foundation; therefore, it is only fitting to offer our alumni the same opportunity. On this inaugural trip, with the assistance of the Fuller Center – Global Builders, alumni will travel to Peru to assist with the building of homes for the Peruvian people.

This trip has very limited availability. The cost of the trip is $800 plus airfare. Registration deadline is Friday, May 30. To learn more, visit the website of the Fuller Center, one of our Mercer On Mission program partners.
