The Alternative 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 civic perspective, promote leadership, critical thinking, social action,
and community involvement by combining experiential learning and direct service.
Each year Student Involvement staff and volunteer Team Leaders bring together 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 a direct service trip and reflection.
