Botswana Visit

A group of Black Hills State University students, faculty and staff are at Botho University in Botswana this week, finalizing plans for a service learning trip and presenting research at an international research symposium.

This experience will provide us with a different perspective on education and how our education at BHSU can make an impact, globally,” said Kristin Rath, physical science composite major from Canton. “I’m looking forward to experiencing our partner school’s culture and geography. It’s completely different than anything I have ever encountered.”

BHSU Service Learning in the Philippines

A group of eight Black Hills State University students who spent Spring Break in the Philippines shared their life-changing experience with the community recently. Students in the new International Service Learning Program at BHSU hosted a presentation “Success in Sudlon” for fellow students, faculty, staff and family members. They shared their videos, photos and first-hand experiences noting how the experience mentoring high school students in the Philippines created life changing experiences for them as well.

Through the Program, BHSU partnered with Sudlon School in the Philippines to provide new learning opportunities for both BHSU and the Filipino students. The BHSU students created curriculum for the Filipino students with educational issues including bullying, self-esteem, and study skills.
