In an era of significant social, political, and economic globalization, it is crucial for health and human services
educators to adopt a more hands on international view vis-à-vis student education. This article presents
information that will assist educators in extending domestic service learning concepts and activities into the
undergraduate international study arena. The authors also introduce a research framework for further data
collection and analysis. Finally, the article shares lessons learned and presents a continuum that features five
milestones, institutional support, faculty buy-in, agency partnership, student engagement, and pre-post
assessment that contribute to the successful incorporation of service learning activities.
