The Woolman Semester

ABOUT THE WOOLMAN SEMESTER

There is nothing like returning to a place
that remains unchanged to find the ways
in which you yourself have altered.
—Nelson Mandela

The Woolman Semester was launched in the Spring of 2005. From that time until the Spring of 2016, over 300 students took part in this challenging program emphasizing peace, justice and sustainability. While programmatically successful, The Woolman Semester continued to be challenged by the high costs of running the program. The CPFEA Board decided to suspend the program after the Spring Semester 2016, and began discerning the way forward.
