An avid backpacker, photographer, and motorcyclist, Travis came to The New School in 2009 after working with the public school system and The Close Up Foundation. He believes deeply that learning within the social sciences should be rooted in real-world explorations of social justice, and that travel is one of the best ways to give learning purpose and meaning. In past years Travis has helped organize student trips to an orphanage in Kenya, an elephant refuge in Thailand, and worked with students to build clean-air stoves in rural Peru.
