"Language in Motion helps us to reach out to the local community and potential students to awaken them to the empowering richness of world languages and cultures."
- Thomas R. Kepple, Former President, Juniata College
“Language in Motion provides a quintessential service-learning opportunity for students of language and culture, study-abroad returnees, and international students to engage with each other and with the local community in a meaningful and mutually beneficial way.”
- Jenifer Cushman , Dean, Juniata College Center for International Education
"I have noticed that the Language in Motion program is good for international students and their self-development while living in the U.S. I see it as a way for them to reflect on who they are, their culture, and how it relates to and connects with this new culture. As for U.S. students, it is also a chance to reflect and process their study-abroad experiences."
- Kelly Turlish, Former Community Service-Learning Coordinator, Juniata
