The overseas study service program offered by Goshen College, Indiana, is described. The program strives to promote learning with a global perspective. Goshen sends students abroad in one of three ways: (1) a study service trimester, (2) a year abroad study, or (3) a European program which offers art courses in Italy, world civilization courses in England, and literature studies in Ireland. In some cases, exchange programs are sponsored with Poland and China. Approximately half the students on campus at Goshen at any time have had the experience of living in another culture. In addition to the cross cultural experience of the students, the attitudes and understanding of the faculty are pivotal to the success of the program. Goshen also offers a TESOL minor in which students are involved in teaching English to community and campus speakers of other languages. Interaction with those students provides cross cultural learning. Goshen is dedicated to the interchange and exchange of persons, ideas, and appreication among cultures to achieve a global perspective. (RW)
