Other International Opportunities

Below are some examples of on-campus programs or organizations that may travel off-campus/internationally as part of their organizational activities. While these organizations arrange and lead their own programs, the Office of International & Off-Campus Education provides health/safety support to the programs. Students interested in these opportunities should be in touch directly with the program or organization. Additional information regarding unaccompanied student travel can be found here.

Alternative School Break

Student organizations connected with the Center for Community Engagement work to create positive change through civic engagement, typically during fall or spring break. Working with various partners both on and off campus, students plan and implement domestic and international service trips over interim and spring break. ASB projects have been conducted in Honduras, the Dominican Republic, New York City, Baltimore, Appalachia, the Gulf Coast and Clearwater, Fla. For more information, please see the ASB website.

MEDLIFE's mission is to help families achieve greater freedom from the constraints of poverty, empowering them to live healthier lives. MEDLIFE aims to achieve this goal through partnering with motivated individuals in poor communities working to improve their access to MEDs: Medicine, Education and community Development. Lafayette students have brought a MEDLIFE chapter to campus.
