eslGeography Professor Bob Douglas has long been a proponent of service-learning. His World Regional Geography students participate in tutoring for English-language learners who have immigrated to Minnesota from around the world. Prof. Douglas was featured in this Gustavian Weekly article. “You don’t have to go to Africa to study Somali culture or Sudanese culture or to gain insight into what’s going on,” Douglas says. “There’s a whole local way of learning about foreign cultures in a service learning capacity.”
