Petition Waiver Form for Cross-Cultural Education

Not all learning experiences involve the competencies imagined for Cross-Cultural Education. Here are some examples of experiences that would be unsuitable:

  • Any experience that was culturally familiar to the student.
  • Any experience where the focus was not on learning knowledge and skills for future leadership of faith communities.
  • Any experience where there was no engagement with local people or ministry leaders in an unfamiliar context.
  • Any experience where there was no leadership by those working in an unfamiliar context.
  • Any experience where there were no commitment to regular theological or cultural reflection before, during, or after the experience.
  • Any experience where the student led or managed "mission trips."
  • Any length of stay on a cultural site that was less than 14 days.
  • Seminary Internship Experiences or other curricular and/or non-credit bearing requirements (such as CPE or Diaconal Project).
