Tim Costello, director of the Center for Service-Learning at Western Washington University, will discuss the Building Bridges with Rwanda trip this past summer at a noon presentation on Thursday, Oct. 4, in Viking Union Room 552.

On the trip, Western established its international service-learning activities in Gashora, Rwanda, creating a partnership to advance the rural community’s development goals while providing rich educational opportunities for Western students.

Also presenting will be Lama Mugabo, managing director of Building Bridges with Rwanda.

This presentation, part of the Center for International Studies Lecture Series, is free and open to the public.

The center sponsors this series so that Western faculty, staff and students who have had significant international experiences can share the perspectives they have gained with the larger community.
