In this manuscript, the authors detail the initial evaluations of the effects of participation in two iterations of an interdisciplinary learning community with a short-term study abroad opportunity on undergraduate student learning and behavior. The results suggest that the CHE (Cultural, Historical, and Environmental) log tool may be useful in capturing information about students' interactions with their native and foreign environments and how their experiences further affect their later interactions with their native environment. These findings are discussed in terms of methodological revisions made to the procedures and experimental methods to strengthen the reliability and validity of the conclusions and the implications for integrating teaching and scholarship in mutually beneficial ways.
