Philip Irving's Life-Changing Journey

May 08, 2020

Philip Irving, Class of 2021, joined a group of Webster students participating in The Africana Studies experiential learning course that combined in-classroom learning with a weeklong trip to the campus in Accra, Ghana. Support from the Chancellor’s Vision Fund made this powerful program possible.
