Full Circle: Guilford Connections with Refugee Communities

Full Circle: Guilford Connections with Refugee Communities

Experiential learning through community engagement is a long term investment. Sometimes the payoff takes decades because Guilford College's stewardship is built on the idea that some good things can't be measured by quarterly returns or academic semesters. Bonner Center for Community Service and Learning and its student coordinators and teams of student volunteers have run some community sites for years, long enough for refugee and immigrant children who were tutored by Guilfordians to have grown up ready for college themselves.

E&H Bonner Scholar Pilots New Study Abroad Program in Ireland

E&H Bonner Scholar Pilots New Study Abroad Program in Ireland

This semester, I have served.

I have served myself by traveling to Ireland, a country I could only dream of before this experience. I have served Emory & Henry College by piloting a new program in partnership with International Partnership for Service Learning (IPSL) that incorporates service-learning into study abroad experiences. More importantly, though, I have been able to serve the Dublin, Ireland, community.
