HWW Summer Bridge Spotlight: Alana Ackerman


Anthropology graduate student Alana Ackerman spent the summer working with community partner Immigrant Services of Champaign-Urbana. The purpose of this organization is to help immigrant families overcome their adversities and together build a future where their assets and talents fulfill their hopes and dreams.

Alana's partnership with Immigrant Services of Champaign-Urbana was made possible through Summer Bridge program sponsored by the Humanities Without Walls Consortium. In this blog spotlight, Alana reflects on her experience.
