About the Author:

Donald G. DeGraaf is a professor of Kinesiology and Director of Off-Campus Programs at Calvin College. He served as a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer in the Philippines and has also worked in Korea, Hong Kong, and the Netherlands, all of which has contributed to his passion for international education and global engagement. His teaching focusses on experiential education, non-profit management, youth development, and leisure and life satisfaction. He has co-authored ten textbooks and numerous articles related to these scholarly interests.

Review:

"There and Back: Living and Learning Abroad is much more than the typical 'how to get the most out of your experience' guidebook for studying abroad. DeGraaf wisely and carefully accompanies the student traveler along the inner personal-spiritual challenges of the journey. Real transformation from a study abroad experience requires not only a guiding vision and openness to the 'other,' but also intense self-reflection and a willingness to dwell with the tensions of unanswered questions, conflicting and confusing loyalties and sobering realities. This book thoughtfully challenges students to explore these tensions and to be open to surprising discoveries. Packed with helpful information and the voices of students who have successfully negotiated transformative journeys, There and Back should be a must read for students and study abroad professional as well." - Dr. Ken Bussema, Vice President for Student Programs (retired), Council for Christian Colleges & Universities "In his book, There and Back, Don DeGraaf uses the gift of story and personal experience to produce a guidebook as important as any travel guide. DeGraaf's book helps students and other pilgrims unlock the treasures of traveling and living abroad through meaningful reflection on the places and people encountered along the way." - Chris Van Zanen, LCC International University, Klaipeda Lithuania
