Engaged Cornell Speaker Series "Building Mutually Rewarding Partnerships for Global Engaged Learning"

Friday, March 7, 2014 at 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Mann Library, 102 Cornell University Mann Library, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA

Becky Stoltzfus and Jeanne Moseley direct Cornell's University-wide Global Health minor, an interdisciplinary minor that requres a field experience of at least 8 weeks duration as an integral part of a 15-credit curriculum.  To provide high-quality field experience, the Global Health Program has cultivated partnerships for student learning with academic and NGO partners in Tanzania, Zambia, India and the Dominican Republic.  These partnerships are based on principles of reciprocity, open communication, growth, and responsiveness to change.  Each partnership is unique because it is formed around a place of mutual reward for Cornell students and the partner.  Becky and Jeanne will illustrate this approach by briefly narrating the stories of two partnerships, highlighting both common principles and particularities in each story.  Becky is professor of nutrition, Director of the Global Health Program, and Provost's Fellow for Public Engagement.  Jeanne is an instructor of global health and Associate Director of the Global Health Program.

A collaboration between Engaged Learning + Research, the Public Service Center and the Office of Academic Diversity Initiatives, the Engaged Speaker Series brings service-learning scholars, educators and practitioners to Cornell's campus, the local community and to area colleges.  The invited speakers engaged in dialogue and conduct workshops for faculty, students, staff and community members on a wide variety of topics meant to advance our knowledge, skills and understanding of community engaged learning and research.
