Tom Hallquist, an adjunct instructor of ommunications, just published a book title Building Cultural Bridges: Developing Cultural Awareness Programs for Colleges and Universities. The project concentrates on the expectations and cultural shock of international graduate students at Bethel College and Seminary, St. Paul, Minn., and examines cultural assistance programs at 13colleges and universities in the Christian College Consortium. The premises of the project are to establish a foundation of interpersonal interactions to develop an empathic understanding of varying cultural values, customs and expectations and the development of communication channels for international graduate students to enhance the educational, spiritual and financial stability of the institution.
