Cultures, Madeline Martinson 2017 Boise State University

Cultures, Madeline Martinson

International Journal of Undergraduate Community Engagement

This document is a poster I created after making and reading my book to the children on the Bells for Books book mobile. First I created a book about culture and diversity. Once I finished the book I went to the book mobile and read it to the children that were on the bus that day. After reading the book I reflected on culture and diversity and put my conclusions on this poster. The poster rejects on my process through my book Culture and reading it to the children and our class conception of diversity and ethics. I talk about ...

Diversity Through Musical Reading, John Waits

International Journal of Undergraduate Community Engagement

This poster is an overview of the children's book I wrote and the research, writing, and reading that went into it. The book uses animals from the main countries that Boise's refugee population comes from as characters and gives them all different musical instruments that they play together to make beautiful music to show that, even though people may be different, it's better when everyone is included.

Bells For Books Community Service, Jamie J. Maas 2017 Boise State University

Bells For Books Community Service, Jamie J. Maas

International Journal of Undergraduate Community Engagement

Cultural awareness is something that is very important in building a healthy community. America is a nation of immigrants and as such it is very important that the immigrants that settle into our city feel very safe and welcome. One way that a citizen can learn civic engagement and give back to their community is through community service. In my community, Bells for Books offers wonderful opportunities for children that don’t necessarily have access to a library. For those children, writing books in their language, and volunteering time to read stories to children can make a huge difference in ...

This is a study of the theory of Authentic Leadership from a number of different sources and ideals. These theories are then explained, in detail, how I personally applied them to several projects involving non-profit organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boise Rescue Mission, and the Kuna Middle School. It shows my personal reflection of working with the organizations on a volunteer basis and how the above theories were effective and relatable to the groups that I led.

OSL Annual report 年度報告

One Step Forward • One Decade

In Chinese language usage, “ten” is not only a number but also concurrently symbolizes the culmination of a development stage. As such, very often we can hear about the saying of “achievements made in a decade”.

In 2016 it is just the year of the 10th anniversary of the Office of Service-Learning (OSL) at Lingnan University. In retrospect, perhaps we should be humble in claiming any “achievements made in a decade”. Nevertheless, through this 10 years' well-honed experience we have managed to link together faculties, students and community members, who have utilized their professional knowledge ...


Impact Of Books, Alyssa Buffi 2017 Boise State University

Impact Of Books, Alyssa Buffi

International Journal of Undergraduate Community Engagement

This poster details my service learning project. I wrote and illustrated a book that will teach children how important it is to accept people even if they are different. After I had my book printed and delivered, I volunteered one evening to read to a group of children on the Bells for Books bus in Garden City. By taking the time to go read to the youth of Garden City, I not only showed them that they deserve the right to education and books, but also the importance of volunteering.

The Role Of International Service-Learning In Facilitating Undergraduate Students’ Self-Exploration, Min Yang, Yun Yung,Lillian Luk, Beverley Joyce Webster, Wai Lap Albert Chau, Hok Ka Carol Ma

Staff Publications

This article examines the role of international service-learning (ISL) in facilitating undergraduates’ exploration of their conceptions of self (i.e., self-exploration). Conception of self refers to the use of values to define one’s role in a social/cultural group or organization and in society, and to determine current actions and future commitments. ISL is intentionally structured activities involving students in social services in overseas settings. Existing research underscores the importance of inducting students to other-oriented (showing care and empathy for others) values in facilitating their self-exploration through ISL. Interviews with 48 students in Hong Kong who participated in ISL ...
