In order to prepare spiritually, mentally, and physically for the trip to the Northern region and Haiti border of the Dominican Republic, there are mandatory meetings for all participants. All participants are expected to attend all meetings in their entirety. Meetings are schedule at times that best suit the participants, so every measure is made to accommodate the group. This preparation becomes important not only for your own personal readiness for the trip but also for the development and trust of community. If you are not able to attend every meeting in their entirety, then you are advised not to apply.


Each individual is responsible for raising or paying $2000 for the cost of the trip. There is no scholarship or financial aid available.


We are asking all students to be committed to all parts of the program. Also, IMAP upholds a strong commitment to living a life of simplicity and openness. This means that we are not touring the city or spending money on lots of things. We are trying to immerse ourselves into the community and living within simple means to help understand more those we are walking with. Our focus is immersion and not tourism.

Finally, all participants will be subject to a conduct review prior to the trip. All participants in IMAP must remain in good standing with the University to participate in this program.
