Alternative Spring Break Trip Opening

Filed under: Announcements @ 2:01 pm


We have an opening on our Alternative Spring Break trip to Yakima, WA, and I would greatly appreciate your help sharing this with students so we can try to fill this spot! This trip is open to all undergraduate and graduate students who pay student fees to the Corvallis campus.

On this trip, students will learn about the human face and cost of land acquisition, colonization, and immigration by exploring the influx and interplay of different cultural groups in the Yakima valley. They will work with the Yakima Nation, Latinx migrant workers, and the City of Yakima to develop a deeper understanding of the area’s historical relationship to the land and to explore implications for the present and future of different cultural groups in the region. Alternative Break trips are designed to help students develop increased global consciousness, empathy, leadership skills, and engaged citizenship.

Here is more information for students, including a short blurb that is great for Facebook posts. I’ve also attached a couple of pictures from past trips that you’re welcome to use.
