Service-learning links service to the community with formal academic study, for the enrichment of both, and is gaining in popularity among students and their teachers. What happens when we add the dimension of another culture and another part of the world? This book, the culmination of a three-year, three-part study funded by the Ford Foundation, explores the effects of international service-learning on the students who participate, the institutions where they study, and the agencies where they perform their service. It tells us that international service-learning is a transforming experience for all concerned, and a means through which we can create citizens and individuals who are responsive to the needs of others, civically engaged, and prepared for a peaceful future based on the globalization of compassion, tolerance, and understanding. The conclusions, based on sound research, provide useful advice to those initiating service-learning: those seeking to make the practice of international service-learning an ongoing commitment of their college or university: and those eager to encourage participation in study abroad programs that immerse students in the foreign culture, thereby making education abroad as rich and beneficial as possible for the students. Contributors: Humphrey Tonkin, Susan J. Deeley, Margaret Pusch, Diego Quiroga, Michael J. Siegel, John Whiteley, and Robert G. Bringle
