Every year, the Department of Education offers a Maymester course called Cultural Perspectives in Education. In the two-week program, students take a trip into a culturally diverse environment to spend significant time in a school setting.

Spring Break Missions
The College of Education sponsors a spring break trip to the Bronx in New York City working in the public school system tutoring elementary school students as well as working within the classes. Students also organize a Wednesday night program at Manhattan Church of Christ for the children and teenagers of the community. The trip is led by department faculty and open to all Lipscomb students.
