2004 Heiskell Award Honorable Mention: Internationalizing the Campus

Georgia State University

Cross Cultural Conversation and Service Partners

Nomination submitted by: Cheryl Delk, Director, Intensive English Program

Program Mission
This collaboration is unique as it not only pairs non-native and native speakers of English as conversation partners, but brings them together to participate in service learning activities in the Atlanta community. The collaboration is directly linked to several course requirements for both students of the Intensive English Program (IEP) as well as those in a Freshman Learning Community (FLC) with particular interest in language use and communication across cultures.
