Alternative Spring Break

Alternative Spring Break


Alternative Spring Break (ASB) is a student led initiative that gives students the opportunity to take part in educational service projects during their scheduled spring break.  The ASB program encourages active citizenship by providing service opportunities addressing issues within the community.

ASB is created in partnership between Achieving Community Transformation (ACT), the Office of Community-Based Learning and Research, and Student Engagement and Activities.
