The Study Abroad Program and National Student Exchange offer these opportunities. Serve Away: Students volunteer for service projects, often related to their fields of study or career goals, which expose them to issues related to poverty, hunger, and lack of educational resources, and expose them to new cultures and regions. Opportunities for service are available through the Center for Service and Leadership. Work Away: Students receive first-hand work experience, related to academic and career goals, that increases their marketability to future employers.
