The Wisconsin Union Directorate Alternative Breaks Committee is built on the principle of service learning. Students embark on life-changing experiences of teamwork, high-impact education, and powerful volunteerism, which serves as a vice to instill and inspire individuals to participate in service and build stronger communities in their own hometowns.

All alternative break trips and events are planned by committee members. If you are passionate about a social or environmental issue come join the committee and help create events and trips that revolve around those topics! You are the first step in making a more understanding and compassionate campus and world.

Winter Trip Applications have closed. Spring Applications will be open on January 11th, more information coming soon!


All free events sponsored by WUD Alternative Breaks Committee are intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
