Cultural Explorations Program

Program Overview

Cultural Explorations are student experiences, where applied, student-centered exploration align with culture and scholarship.  The purpose of the program is to purposefully engage students in experiences and focused reflection to increase knowledge, develop skills, explore values, and develop students’ capacities to contribute to the Texas A&M University campus community and beyond.

The Cultural Explorations program promotes a positive and supportive climate by providing an environment that fully recognizes, values, and integrates diversity in the pursuit of learning.  The program will demonstrates respect for individual differences, affirm and encourage pride in a variety of social identities, explore and educate about individual differences in a safe, positive, and nurturing environment, and targets various historically marginalized or underrepresented racial, ethnic and cultural identity groups.

For all trips, we will travel together in a coach bus to the trip destination and back to Aggieland. Trip registration closes on the Wednesday before each trip. Once you register, you will be emailed an itinerary the Thursday before the trip.
