One of the most innovative opportunities offered to Kansas Wesleyan University students is the option to register for a course which includes an intentional and meaningful service experience with travel, domestic or abroad. This is the Wesleyan Journey.
KWU has announced that in addition to launching the Wesleyan Journey, the university will fund one of these amazing courses for qualified students before they graduate! Students may, however, register for a Wesleyan Journey as early as their freshman year at their own cost.
Students will have a variety of Wesleyan Journeys to choose from during fall break, spring break, and summer sessions. Each Wesleyan Journey will be aligned with academic courses and their respective outcomes. These will typically be two credit hour courses.
Partnered with led2serveU, these courses being offered at Kansas Wesleyan will all have intentional serving components. This partnership allows KWU the chance to provide life-changing, service-learning opportunities to students with an established organization that has strong relationships with partner communities all across the globe.
In addition to faculty members traveling with their students and teaching the course, a led2serve Journey Leader will travel with them and lead them into established partner locations. They will support the faculty and oversee all logistics, serving initiatives and communicate with community partners in each location.
Wesleyan Journeys for the 2015-2016 academic year will be announced in December, 2014. Funded Wesleyan Journeys will begin in the fall of 2015.
* If students choose an international Journey that is fully funded, they will be responsible for having a current and valid passport. Fully funded Journeys will typically be 2-3 credit hours including 3 to 7 days of travel. There will be a list of Wesleyan Journeys that have a plus (+). These are Wesleyan Journeys that have additional costs, credits and/or travel periods.
