Creighton Students Spend Spring Break Providing Service

One of Creighton University’s largest contingencies ever, 219 students in 27 groups, will be spending spring break learning and serving in communities both locally and nationally. The March 7-11 trips are themed, “We are all sisters and brothers.” The spring break service trips provide students the opportunities to learn about social justice, education, health care, diverse cultures, sustainability and more.

Several new trips have been added this year. In Omaha, a new activity features a five-day program working with local community partners to learn about racial justice movements, past and present. Other Omaha events include a homelessness immersion program, a sustainability educational effort, and work with the Sudanese community.

Begun in 1983, this is the 28th year of Creighton students participating in spring break service trips.
