Earn Tier III SALT Credit for a Mission Trip!

Over the last several years Lipscomb’s Missions and SALT programs have formed a partnership that has allowed us to collaborate in ways that have enriched both of our programs and enhanced service-learning and missions experiences. This year we will provide you with the opportunity to "opt-in" to participate in service-learning as a part of any winter break, spring break, or summer mission trip.

Students who are interested may opt-in after mission trip registration to participate in a service-learning experience via the SALT website (SALT link provided in registration confirmation email), and then must register for a zero-credit, zero-cost course. Connected to this course will be a reflection guide consisting of six prompts that you will complete before (two), during (two), and after (two) your mission trip. This guide will be facilitated by the SALT Program through Blackboard. (You will not be required to access the internet during your mission trip.)

All traditional undergraduate students must complete two service-learning experiences before graduation. One experience must come from Tiers II or III.  No more than one experience can come from Tier I. View the pyramid and description below for more details:
