Impact Experience


Impact Experience (formerly Alternative Spring Break) offers all students at Western and its affiliates access to unique co-curricular opportunities to support community projects during the November and February Reading Weeks and in early May. Impact Experience is more than just a one-week experience--it is a program with leadership elements and workshops, combined with service and reflection.

We look forward to planning new experiences with our wonderful global partners as soon as we can do so safely. For 2021-2022, we are working with our local partners to plan experiences in the London area. 

Check back here in the fall for more details or follow us on Instagram (@westernustudentexperience) for updates.
