    Immersion fosters Blugold connections with Somali community
    Monday, Feb. 13, 2017

    Growing up in a Twin Cities suburb, Connor Zielinski was aware that there was a large Somali community in Minneapolis, yet he knew little about the people who live there. As immigration and other issues touching on diverse populations, including his Somali neighbors, became part of the rhetoric in state and national elections last fall, Zielinski — a UW-Eau Claire freshman with an interest in politics — realized he didn’t understand enough about the issues or diverse cultures to join the conversation in a meaningful way. So he decided to do something about it. He found the perfect place to start by joining UW-Eau Claire’s Somali Immersion program, an initiative that immerses Blugolds in the Twin Cities’ Somali community, where they spend a week volunteering in predominately Somali schools, talking with community leaders and activists, visiting Somali businesses and sampling local foods.
