History
Our Spring BreakAway program was originally created to allow students the opportunity to have a more immersion style experience in community engagement, as students were indicating that serving was important to them. We were also hearing from our students that one-off activities though important, were not as satisfying as a longer relationship.

We recently opened our Center for Service & Leadership here on campus, and will now house our BreakAway programs within this larger space. Student Leaders identify sites both out of state and in state to serve at.
