University of Mary Service Trips

The University of Mary, following its Benedictine values, offers you a unique opportunity to serve others throughout the world.

Service and Medical Mission in Peru

Undergraduate students from any area of study can participate in our service trip to Peru in May of each year.

Students will assist in bringing basic health care to the poorest of the poor in Ayaviri, Puno. A background in health science and/or knowledge of Spanish can be beneficial, but is most definitely not required, as all people can serve the community in a variety of ways.
