29 “Service-learning is minimally a three- legged stool in which the interests and needs of the community, the student and the academic institution must be balanced. Each entity must be given and must take an equitable responsibility for the service and learning.” Service-Learning as a Milking Stool Garry Hesser Departments of Sociology and Urban Studies Director of Experiential Education, Augsburg College

33 “The most important thing I learned is how important it is to help others” “Take this course seriously, because if you put the effort in, it will be the best class you take” “I learned that it is important to volunteer because we often get caught up in our own lives and we forget about other people. It’s a good way to get out of your own world and experience a different perspective” “Life is not always as good as you have it” “The most important thing I learned was about me and responsibility” “I learned a valuable lesson about myself, the ability to teach; which may change my life by what I decide to do with it”

34 “I’ve decided to continue volunteering once a week at the hospital because I enjoy experiencing the small miracles that occur within the waiting room… They say that society has gotten worse over the past few decades, well, for a few hours each week I get to see how society should really be. Experiencing this helps keep me centered in my life and keeps everything in perspective. Who would have thought that the one thing I was required to do would be one of the most fulfilling experiences I get to take away from college. I’m thankful the university has this requirement, because all students should have the opportunity to experience what I’ve been lucky to experience this past summer volunteering.”

58 Making Eau Claire a Home Away From Home Rusudan Kilaberia Georgia “These are people with whom I share everyday life. The most important thing for me is that when I am going back to the house, I do not feel like I am going back to someone else’s house; I feel that I am going to the place where I am comfortable.” Sachie Makabe Japan “She is very caring and sensitive to each of us who is trying to learn a very different culture than our own. Her caring is as real as my mother back in Japan. She is very open-minded to different cultures.”

60 Economic Impact UW-Eau Claire’s International Students’ contribution from tuition and fees, and living expenses for : Source: 1999 Institute for International Education Open Doors Report

61 International Education contributes to our students’ personal growth in ways far beyond what traditional classroom learning can help them achieve.

62 "Studying abroad gave me a chance to gain an outside perspective on myself and my country. I began to question things about my life that I had never questioned before.... I learned to be open minded about different people and ideas." "Studying abroad changed my life. It expanded my world, gave me insight into both different cultures and my own, and helped me to understand who I am as well. It was honestly the best 4 months of my entire life." "Costa Rica was an experience of a lifetime. You will gain a deeper appreciation of culture and realize that differences make us unique and special. They bring us close to one another." -Angela McAllister (Fall 1999) Australia -Rebecca Platt (Spring 1999) England -Kristin Paschke (Fall 1999) Costa Rica

63 "This past semester in Monterrey contributed greatly to my understanding of Mexican culture, history and politics. The interaction with both Mexican and other international students was entertaining and enriching. The sharing of our views of Mexico, the U.S. and the rest of the world widened my horizons and opened my eyes to other opinions. Overall, it was an unforgettable experience that helped me look at where I want to go in life." "Any study abroad program is a step toward independence and one step closer to understanding the world around you. I learned more about my feelings toward my own culture because I now have something to compare it to. It was invigorating, challenging (to the mind and heart), exciting, and it has made me realize how much life and earth have to offer me." -Elizabeth Peters (Spring 2000) Mexico -Stephanie Carlson (Spring 2000) Scotland
