Trip Coordinators

Applications will open mid-May 2020. 

If you've been on an immersion trip during your time at Santa Clara, are an undergraduate student, and want to lead one of the Center's immersion experiences, consider becoming an Immersion Coordinator! As an Immersion Coordinator, you will further your commitment to building a community that cares for the common good of the world.  
In this process, you will develop leadership skills, assist in the planning and organization of all aspects of an immersion, and most importantly, facilitate an unforgettable immersion experience for your fellow Broncos.
Only students who have participated in an immersion during their time at Santa Clara are eligible to apply. If you have questions regarding this or would like to get further clarification based on our individual experience, please email Anna Ricci at
As an Immersion Coordinator, you prepare and accompany students for a weeklong, immersive experience outside of the immediate Silicon Valley, during which you will help students explore both the lights and shadows, the beauty and unjust realities of a region through direct encounter with its inhabitants and those organizations working in solidarity with and service of these people. In engaging these global communities through thoughtful reflection, students will begin to see problems far away become much closer to home. After returning from immersion, you have the amazing privilege to further facilitate the students’ return in impacting their local community.

"This past winter, I led a group of my peers as we immersed ourselves in the social justice realities of East Los Angeles. I was constantly challenged as I had never had this type of leadership responsibility before. However, I learned the beauty of being uncomfortable and humbly living without all the answers."
