During spring break each year, the Center leads a group of students on a study away service-learning program. This program has an emphasis on vocational exploration in three aspects: faith and social action, social and economic justice, and international humanitarian efforts. Not only are global perspectives enlightened, but many students return to campus and the community more attuned to local injustices and struggles and seek ways to connect with organizations that work to solve these problems.
In past years, groups have traveled to Cuba; Cuernavaca, Mexico (Center for Intercultural Dialogue on Development); New York City; and Northern Ireland.
