Intercultural Trips

OMA often collaborates with campus partners such as the Office for Study Abroad and The Center for Academic Equity in Newcomb Tulane College to provide unique opportunities for students from all identities, cultures, and backgrounds to participate in service learning projects as well as explore a variety of cultures and identities during Fall, Winter and Spring Breaks. 

These trips are designed to build a community between the participating students, faculty, and staff on campus and foster an environment which promotes intellectual inquiry outside of the classroom.

OMA Alternative Break Trip: Legacy Museum & National Memorial For Peace and Justice

Register Here


Join us on a trip to Montgomery, Alabama to visit the Legacy Museum and the National Memorial for Justice and Peace. 

During the trip we will explore the history of inequity, racism, and other forms of oppression faced by Black people in the United States. We will hear narratives, observe documents, and deconstruct the legacy of slavery and how it connects to injustice and mass incarceration today. This day trip will involve a lot of individual reflection, large and small group dialogue, and movement throughout the area. We hope to provide context to the often silenced history of violence against Black people in the United States. Much of what is on exhibit may not have been included in the K-12 curriculum in many states. Lunch and dinner will be provided.

Registration Deposit: $30 per person must be paid by October 1, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. Please bring cash in an envelope with your name, TU ID, and email address to RIchardson Building (#5) Suite 101

If you cannot afford to cover the fee, please contact Cara Guilbeau at or visit the Office of Multicultural Affairs to discuss further.
