The University of Michigan-Flint’s Alternative Spring Break is a University Outreach sponsored program that offers a community service learning experience on a local level during the traditional Spring Break of the academic calendar. Students spend time learning about complex social, cultural and environmental issues. During spring break, groups are bussed to a selected site to engage in meaningful action toward a greater understanding of root causes of relevant issues. Students participate in critical reflection and analysis of social justice issues they experience first-hand. In 2013, the week will culminate with students traveling to Detroit to visit the Campus Martius Park, Freedom House, Detroit Institute of Art and Ford Field as part of the reflection activity.
