Alternative Break Immersions
University Ministry’s Alternative Break Immersion Program (ABI) offers Dominican University students, faculty and staff an opportunity to step beyond our gates and dive into the social concerns of today. The program includes immersion experiences offered over the spring, and summer breaks. We learn together in relationship. A team from Dominican University engages in service and builds relationships with people living in a different culture and among themselves. Together we examine social issues, reflect, and pray. We do all of this because such experiences have the power to transform lives, especially our own.
Our immersion experiences are offered on a rotating basis and includes international, national and local experiences. We hope that you'll consider applying.
Receive Academic Credit
The service and study immersion to Guatemala is designed as a credit-bearing course. All other alternative break immersions can have credit bearing components added to them to meet the requirements for the Social Justice and Civic Engagement minor or for any other major/minor program that agrees to integrate this experience into your course of study.
