2020 tour of Europe
fall 2020 tour of Europe features Mennonite migrations
Bluffton University President Jane Wood and Dr. Gerald Mast, professor of communication, will host a tour of Europe Sept. 26-Oct. 7, 2020. The experience will feature tours of significant Mennonite heritage sites and visits to Zurich and Bern, Switzerland; Strasbourg, France; Cologne, Germany; and Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
“I am excited to share our plans for a tour of Europe this fall featuring significant sites related to the path of Mennonite migrations on the continent. This experience is an extension of Bluffton’s core commitment to cross-cultural learning, which we know is truly a lifelong pursuit,” said President Wood. “I look forward to connecting with our alumni and friends as we further explore Bluffton’s Mennonite heritage.”
Dr. Mast will serve as a guide on Anabaptist and Mennonite history and travelers will receive a copy of his forthcoming book, “Remembering Anabaptist Ancestors,” as well as a guidebook developed for this tour.
