Eric Nodge ACF Abstract FY12

"Staff and Students Collaboration: Developing and International Cultural Exchange and Service-Learning Program"

Conference Name: National Collegiate Honors Conference

This session will detail how a group of students initiated a project in Ghana in collaboration with Academic and Student Affairs professionals. These students advocated for global issues and service-learning in and beyond Honors which led to the creation of a formalized interdisciplinary service-learning study abroad program.

Janaan Decker, Leena Karsan, and I will be jointly presenting at this session and elaborating on the issues in the article "Honors in Ghana: How Study Abroad Enriches Students' Lives" published in the Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council (Volume 12, Spring/Summer 2011, pp. 33-36).
