Intercultural Learning

"Every time I walk into the Multicultural Family Center I reap the rewards of my AmeriCorps experience.  Through my service as a tutor and mentor, I have been able to expand out of my college community and connect with the Dubuque community.  I have come to know Dubuque on a very personal level and have embraced its diversity.  The great part is that these differences do not divide, but rather they unite us.
