Fall break is intended to provide a local service experience. Spring break is a week-long service project that provides students an opportunity to participate in community service and hands-on learning experiences.
During both breaks, students address issues of poverty, hunger, social injustice, and others. Volunteers may also provide vital humanitarian aid and disaster relief at home and abroad.
Requirements: Must be a full-time WSU student (12+ credits for both fall and spring semesters). Must have at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA.

The American Democracy Project (ADP) is a multi-campus initiative focused on public higher education’s role in preparing the next generation of informed, engaged citizens for our democracy. The project began in 2003 as an initiative of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), in partnership with The New York Times.
The goal of the American Democracy Project is to produce graduates who are committed to being knowledgeable, involved citizens in their communities. The 250 participating colleges and universities, as members of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, have been described as “Stewards of Place.” As today’s undergraduates complete their studies and return to their communities, universities must prepare the next generation of citizens to become tomorrow’s “Stewards of Place.”
To support this goal, ADP has created seven initiatives involving ADP campuses and partners. This is called the Civic Engagement in Action Series. These seven initiatives are:
- The Stewardship of Public Lands
- Seven Revolutions
- Participatory Citizenship: American Democracy and the Jury System
- Political Engagement Project
- Strategies to Encouraging Voting
- Civic Engagement and the First Year
- Civic Commitment
All seven of these initiatives brings attention to a national issue. A variety of materials, program ideas and recommendations for campuses participating in the ADP were developed through the Civic Engagement in Action Series.
American Democracy Project campuses observe and participate in a series of Special Days of Action and Reflection. While we strive as a project to drive civic engagement deeper into the curriculum and co-curriculum of our campuses in long-term, lasting ways, we also recognize the importance of specific days of celebration. The special days in action and reflection that ADP observes include: 9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance (September 11), Constitution Day and Citizenship Day (September 17), Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service (January 16, 2012), and Earth Day (April 22).
The Democracy Commitment
Modeled after the ADP, the Democracy Commitment (TDC) is a national civic engagement project for community colleges that aims to engage community college students in civic learning and democratic practice. The goal of the project is for every graduate of an American community college to have an education in democracy. This includes all community colleges students, whether they aim to transfer to a four-year college or university, to achieve an associate degree or to obtain a certificate.
