Nebraska Methodist College (NMC) alternative-break service immersion trips began in 2004. Service Immersion trips are a partnership between the Center for Health Partnerships and the academic division offering immersion trips through the NRS 381 - Immersion Experience two credit hour elective course. NMC service immersion trips provide participants with an opportunity for a community based experience of hands-on service and cultural immersion. These experiences are intended to deepen students' knowledge of community issues, build cultural competence and expand community.
Through focus study, analysis, and social action, these experiences may positively influence the health and well-being of the community. This immersion course is an intensive community-based learning experience. Faculty and community leaders will serve as co-facilitators to assist students in building bridges of understanding and knowing others in a meaningful way. Through an interdisciplinary approach, students will gain global awareness through the study of culture, politics, history, economics, and health care, along with other aspects of diversity.
NMC offers three service immersions each year, which take place during the fall break, winter break and spring break. If you're interested in participating, fill out the Volunteer Opportunities form or click "Contact Staff" below.
