If you are a CUA staff or faculty and are interested in being an adviser on a Service & Justice Immersion Trip, we're happy you're here! Staff advisers play an essential role in the program, walking with students before, during, and after the trip as they process the experience and integrate it into their lives. In order to be placed as an adviser for the current school year's immersion program (trips take place during Spring Break and in mid-May), please complete and submit this interest form by October. Forms are accepted on a rolling basis, and you will be contacted by a Campus Minister upon the submission of your form.

Immersion Trip Adviser Expectations

  • Participate in several pre-trip formation meetings with students, as well as a staff training
  • Serve as an adviser to the student leader, as well as a support and guide to all student participants
  • Act as an official representative of the University, respond to emergency situations, etc.

Please see the interest form for a comprehensive list of responsibilities.
