Why give?

"We strongly believe that transformative learning occurs both, in and out of the classroom…..in fact, the world is one big classroom.  Stepping outside familiar boundaries, opens up a whole new vista…of people, communities and cultural enrichment.  Travel through the Alternative Breaks Program, offers our students the opportunity to make a difference through guided initiatives.  Students develop a wider view and appreciate the communities they serve.  We are ardent supporters of the Alternative Breaks Program and serve on the Alternative Breaks Scholarship Committee to support our deserving Terps in their quest to become outstanding local and global citizens and leaders!"
