          The Olive Tree Initiative (OTI) is built upon strong leadership to help promote experiential education and civil discourse as a constructive and meaningful way to engage with some of the most difficult and complex conflicts of our time. Community members, faculty, administration, and most importantly – university students – are encouraged to get involved to further OTI’s enriching education. OTI offers a number of educational campus and community trips to various conflict regions around the world.

  1. If you would like to get involved in an existing chapter, whether as a student, community member, or faculty member, please contact the leadership at your most local chapter.   If there is no campus in your immediate area, but you would like get involved, please contact send us an email at 

  2. Note: if you would like to start a new chapter of the Olive Tree Initiative on your campus, the Olive Tree Initiative invites and encourages growth as long as new chapters adhere to the strict guidelines and principles all chapters must abide by and are willing to work in partnership with the existing chapters.

  3. If you would like to help out financially, you are more than welcome to donate online.  All donations are processed out of our administrative offices at the University of California, Irvine.  Funds will be used for all campuses and donations are 100% tax deductible to the legally allowed limit.
