A brief description of the sustainability-focused immersive program(s) offered by the institution, including how each program addresses the social, economic, and environmental dimensions of sustainability:

The vision of the immersion program is to actively engage Temple University students in meaningful experiences that foster cultural awareness, global understanding, and social responsibility through learning, service and reflection. The mission of each trip is determined by its location and the work that will be done while in the area. The university offers an annual trip to Rosebud Lakota Reservation in South Dakota, where students learn about the Lakota philosophy of interconnectedness with the land, nature, and other human beings.
