Gain a greater understanding and appreciation for business as missions.  You will be exposed to different types of projects that may demonstrate ways that you can use your education and passions to serve others. You will learn more about the border culture and immigration issues and also a way for you to learn about our great community partners ongoing work along the Texas/Mexico border.
