Community Expeditions - An Initiative for Community Adventures

Based on the success of the long-running New York City Community Theatre trip, the Office of Study Abroad and Outreach is launching, Community Expeditions,  a series of new domestic and international trips designed for adults. Not only do these initiatives give you the opportunity to travel with a group but also your participation helps WIU students achieve their dreams of studying abroad. A portion of the funds collected for each program goes to support scholarships for WIU students to study abroad.

Two exciting destinations lead off our offerings:
