TRIPS - Turning Responsibility Into Powerful Service
Every year, the college's departments of Leadership, Service and Engagement (LSE) and Campus Ministry organize alternative break service TRIPS (Turning Responsibility Into Powerful Service). These trips bring together diverse groups of students and staff for a week of personal, social and spiritual growth. The participants are provided immersion experiences in various communities through direct service dealing with social issues.
Through meaningful reflection and exposure to social issues, alternative break experiences lead to individual commitment toward social change. During these trips, the participants take part in projects involving home construction, tutoring in the inner city, violence prevention, homelessness, poverty, HIV/AIDS and environmental issues.
