The Alternative Spring Break Program enhances the co-curricular experience by placing leadership in the context of civic responsibility and service to the global community. The aim is to develop a global perspective, promote leadership, critical thinking, social action, and community involvement by combining experiential education and direct service.
Each year Student Involvement staff members bring together a group of dedicated students who want to help make a difference in the lives of others. Students have the opportunity to put theory into practice, while learning about issues facing the broader world around them. In the midst of hard work, they have a lot of fun and develop lasting friendships. The experience consists of regular meetings, team building, project preparation, followed by an direct service trip and reflection.
