Transformative learning can produce disorienting challenges for students resulting in changes in their frames of reference that lead to enriching the meaning of their experiences and enhancing their education. It has been suggested that study abroad excursions with home-stay and service-learning components cause transformative learning, as well as benefits of service-learning projects that contribute to sustainable economic, social, and cultural development for the communities that are served. This study tested the hypothesis that home-stay study abroad excursions and international service-learning projects offer transformational learning and community benefits.
