Civil Rights Pilgrimage


Life changing experiences

Your journey through college is one that changes your life, broadens your horizons and enhances your critical thinking skills. We believe firmly that the college journey should also open hearts and minds to histories and experiences sometimes not fully appreciated by all. 

Each year, we offer two travel immersion experiences for you to explore issues of social justice and the history of the civil rights movement in the United States. The trips for this academic year begins on Friday, January 5 or March 16, 2018. Participants will travel to Atlanta, Georgia; Birmingham, Montgomery, Selma, Tuscaloosa, Alabama; Gulfport, Mississippi, New Orleans, Louisiana; Little Rock, Arkansas; and Memphis, Tennessee. Participants will return to Eau Claire on Monday, January 15 or Sunday, March 25.

The cost of the trip is $650 and includes transportation, lodging, museum admission and some meals. A $75 deposit is required at the time of registration. The trip is also open to participants not enrolled at UW-Eau Claire. Registration opens on Monday, October 2 and continues until all 100 spots are filled. Students should pay their $75 deposit at Blugold Central front desk to complete the registration process.

You'll also have the opportunity to register for Women's Studies 222 or Honors 124: Women and the Civil Rights Movement. The course is offered during winterim from 9:00 to noon. Spring course dates are Wednesdays at 5:00 p.m. Registration for the trip is a prerequisite for the course.
