Project Pyramid

In collaboration with the Owen School of Business at Vanderbilt, the Divinity School offers students the opportunity for immersion experiences through Project Pyramid, which is a Vanderbilt University interdisciplinary, student-led program that uses in-classroom and hands-on learning experiences to meaningfully engage with socially conscious organizations across the globe, while establishing market-driven solutions that help fulfill their missions. In recent years, students in the program have traveled to India, Nepal, Bangladesh and South Africa, as well as New Orleans, Tupelo and Nashville.
