Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter reports on a study abroad course, where up to 15 registered students complete domestic (in a midwestern American state) and international (in Athens, Greece) service learning,1 while applying a social work perspective on the global refugee crisis. It highlights the importance of obtaining external funding to support students financially, the significance of university-wide collaborations, and ways to include larger numbers of culturally diverse (non-White) and fiscally underrepresented students. Feedback from survey participants suggests that further subsidies and scholarships would improve accessibility for fiscally underrepresented student groups. 2
