Alumni Engagement

Alumni and Friends Cross-Cultural Tours

Ever wish you had the chance to take part in cross-cultural study through EMU? Or wish you could revisit the site of your own life-changing EMU cross-cultural experience?

EMU has planned two such trips during our Centennial year, 2017-18: Israel/ Palestine has just returned and Cuba is set for March, 2018.

Cuba: People, Places and Possibilities

Tentative Itinerary Pay for your Trip

Cuba is a country of beautiful places, resilient people and intriguing policies. Yet, many U.S. citizens have not had the chance to experience the Cuban reality. This tour provides an opportunity for EMU alumni and friends to experience highlights of past EMU cross-cultural visits to Cuba. It is designed for learning, exchanges and fun. We will learn about the past, the present and future as we stroll through World Heritage sites in ‘Old Havana’, visit health and education programs, hear about dreams for improved relationships between the US and Cuba and experience Cuba’s rich heritage of music and dance. Cuba is a country ‘like no other’.
