Rice students participate in Alternative Spring Break

Approximately 210 Rice University students, faculty and staff spent their spring break giving back to the community through Rice’s Alternative Spring Break program.

Part of Rice’s Center for Civic Leadership, Alternative Spring Break places teams of students in communities around the continental United States to engage in direct community service and experiential learning. The objectives of the program are to provide an experience that allows participants to engage with new communities through direct service work; gain awareness and in-depth education around one social-justice issue; and learn about the value of the reflection process and connect with others on a deeper level. Each Alternative Spring Break group includes approximately a dozen students and faculty and/or staff advisers.
