Along with the experience of Alternative Spring Break, we also offer the option
for students to participate in a 3-credit course: RCSM 485 - Community
Development in Nonprofit Organizations. To obtain credit for RCSM 485, you must
register for the course during the spring semester registration.
Students in RCSM 485 will write papers, complete a class project, and attend all
Alternative Spring Break pre and post departure meetings. We encourage everyone
to participate in the class, as it provides an opportunity to link classroom
knowledge of social and political issues with the experiential learning from the
trip. Additionally, it will allow you to analyze and reflect on your own
personal development through the experience. RCSM 485 is also an elective for the Civic Leadership Minor.
