Mission and Service Trips

Spend your college breaks in service to the greater good.

Nursing student helping others

We see service as more than long hours, sweat, or sacrifice. It’s how we show love all around the world.

During spring, summer, fall, and winter breaks, you can participate in one of our many immersion trips, guided by experienced Waynesburg University faculty and staff. It’s your chance to help underserved communities while earning course credit. These trips apply to a range of academic concentrations or interests and provide incredible work experiences that will nourish you for a lifetime.
For more information about past and future trips visit the Service Tab on myConnect.
