2017 Alternative Spring Break to West Virginia

This Spring Break, join with other Auggies to travel to West Virginia!

Over spring break this year, several Augsburg students will travel to West Virginia to work on building projects with Almost Heaven Habitat for Humanity. While working as a team, students will not only serve the community but think about how the experience connects to their own education and neighborhood. Auggies will explore vocational interests while their skills grow. You can be one of these students!

Since 2006, Augsburg College’s Campus Ministry has committed to spring break service. These experiences have led students into unfamiliar territory to serve in a different area, reflect on the impact of the experience (both of their work and of what they learned through the people they encounter), and continue to imagine their own lifelong commitment to service. Past trips include New Orleans, Louisiana; Biloxi, Mississippi, and Laredo, Texas, and Mobile, Alabama.

Education for Vocation Opportunity in Mexico

The Center for Global Education and Experience, in partnership with the Bernhard Christensen Center for Vocation, is pleased to offer Education for Vocation: An International Professional Development Seminar.  This seminar will take place in Cuernavaca, Mexico from July 11-July 19, 2015 and is designed for educators from a variety of backgrounds and institutions.  Participants will explore diverse cultural and theological understandings of vocation and the impact of cross-cultural encounters upon vocation.  The group will engage with a broad cross-section of Mexican society regarding the different way that their vocations have been shaped by their cultural, theological, and social locations.  There will be ample opportunity to explore new ways to help your students and constituents reflect upon their vocations in today’s global context and share ideas with colleagues from other US-based institutions.
