Transcending Borders provides students, teachers, professionals and practitioners with educational programs, workshops, seminars and conferences that implement and promote forms of leadership that are proactive, responsive and effective at defending the dignity of all, broadening the scope of their freedoms, and emphasizing the importance of community. Our endeavors foster and prepare border-crossing leaders capable of engaging, learning from, understanding and being acceptant of – and responsible to – matters of difference and otherness. Our staff strives to meet this mission by creating learning experiences that are innovative, comprehensive and financially accessible. We aspire to make explicit the possibility of transcending boundaries, community, politics and hope through intense and relevant content, while emphasizing the process of self-reflection and immersion into a “foreign” culture. Through our efforts we promise to stimulate and help advocate for a more vibrant, critically reflexive and inclusive society.
