Immersion Experiences

Improving student intercultural competence

At UW-Eau Claire, we believe that providing opportunities to engage in intercultural experiences outside the classroom offers students the opportunity to challenge and transform their perspectives regarding cultural norms and values. Within the framework of a guided, critically-reflective intercultural experience, and through dialogue and relationship building, students become more aware of multiple perspectives.

  • The domestic and international intercultural immersion experiences we provide give students first-hand interaction with other beliefs, customs, experiences, and environments.
  • The International Fellows Program is dedicated to supporting international student-faculty collaborative research/creative activity and research service-learning (i.e. field research conducted in conjunction with a service-learning experience).
