Review for CILS Benefactors Inc., Steamboat Springs, CO, USA
Teaching for CILS has been a life-changing experience for me. It has given me an opportunity to travel with purpose. Through my host universities, I have been privileged to visit important historical sites with the benefit of academic escorts, including, for example, the Majdanek concentration camp near Lublin, Poland, which I visited with a very knowledgeable graduate student. I have been amazed and inspired by my hard-working students, hungry for knowledge and determined to make their countries better. Through these experiences, I have established lasting friendships with people whose lives have been very different from mine but whose aspirations are remarkably similar. I have been privileged to host several of these new friends at my home in the U.S.
