The Education Abroad mission reads:
"Our mission is to empower University of Maryland students with the knowledge, skills, and perspectives to become mindful and engaged global citizens - leaders and professionals with a strong sense of social responsibility who fearlessly embrace global and local challenges with optimism, passion, and innovative thinking."
Tired of your standard academic routine? If you are looking to gain a broader perspective and comfort zone while continuing your studies, Education Abroad is for you.
Every school year, UMD sends hundreds of students on Alternative Break service trips in pursuit of impacting positive change in communities world wide. While break trips are fun, students find themselves pushed to approach new cultures respectfully, serve selflessly, analyze greater social issues and plan ahead proactively. If you are looking to make a difference through AB, applications are open from August 29th until September 25th.
