Upcoming Alumnae/i Trips
A note from the Alumnae/i Travel Program on International Travel:
We recognize the great challenges of the current moment. We continue to see the impact of the enduring global pandemic, in addition to great suffering caused by war. Our thoughts are with all countries where violence has caused loss of life and forced people to flee their homes.
We continue to plan for our trips in the future, but we recognize that circumstances can change quickly. Our tour operators have introduced greatly increased health and safety protocols, smaller group sizes when possible, updated cancellation policies, and more flexibility and transparency than ever before so that you can travel safely again in the coming year and beyond.
We appreciate your continued patience. If you have a question about a specific departure, please contact Taylor Manferdini (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Sarah McDevitt (email@example.com).
