What is the Olive Tree Initiative doing besides their educational trips?


The yearly educational trips are just one little part of all the OTI chapter activities. Chapters hold political discussions, teach-ins, lectures, movie screenings, food sales, community presentations, etc. to educate and enrich the campus and surrounding community to become more knowledge about the international conflicts we study.  It provides a safe space for students of different perspectives to come together and constructively interact with one another.  While the trip only includes a small group of hand picked student-leaders, the group and organization remains an active and important space on campus that allows the larger student body to engage with the conflict constructively.
