Honors Alternative Spring Break

The Honors Program partners with Illinois State University's Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning to offer a customized experience for Honors students. The model of traditional Alternative Spring Break trips is enriched through the application of the Honors Learning Framework.

Students engage in community-building and educational programming prior to the service-learning trip and join together for a week-long experience grounded in civic engagement. This transformational experience combines learning, serving, and socializing, while creating meaningful memories for participants and those who are positively impacted.
