For the past 10 days, myself and Dr. Anthony Songer, have led the group of students in our Global Citizenship and Social Responsibility Class on a service learning trip in Belize.
We are an interdisciplinary group that includes students who are from a variety of undergraduate programs. This year these include; engineering majors, nursing majors, psychology, education etc. etc.
The theme of of our community service work is “Healthy Lifestyles”. My student Michelle (nursing major), did an excellent job of “connecting the dots” so to speak, or explaining why our projects and interdisciplinary teaming is important in Belize.
Read all about our adventure this year, and the importance of teaching children to grow their own vegetables here. Connecting the Dots by Michelle McCowin
