"Seeing is better than being told" - Kenyan Proverb
The Center for Service-Learning began planning an international service-learning program in 2007 that complements our work in the local community and helps meet future demands of student and faculty interest in international education. Currently, our interdisciplinary international service-learning fellows program includes: James Loucky, Anthropology; Kristi Tyran, Business Management; Liz Mogford, Sociology; Marie Eaton, Fairhaven College; and Tim Costello, Center for Service-Learning. Through our international service-learning trip to Kenya, we are developing an international service-learning model that can be used campus-wide and that will help prepare students for the demands of today's complex, interdependent world.
The world will be a better place through engaged partnerships between students, faculty, and local and global communities, where all participants gain a broader perspective of their role in the social, intellectual and human world. These partnerships are an essential part of Western Washington University's place as the premier public comprehensive university.
