Lock Haven University’s Anne-Marie Turnage will give a presentation on February 4 at the Jon C. Dalton Institute on College Values at Florida State University.
Ms. Turnage is Director of LHU’s MountainServe Center for Global Citizenship. The title of her presentation is “Global Service-Learning in Morocco’s High Atlas Mountains: Values to Results.”
The Jon C. Dalton Institute on College Student Values is an annual conference for student affairs professionals, educators, campus ministers, graduate and undergraduate students interested in character development in college students.
"I am very excited and honored to be presenting at the Dalton Institute on College Student Values at Florida State,” said Ms. Turnage. “I look forward to the opportunity to share the work of the MountainServe Center for Global Citizenship at Lock Haven University with my peers across the country.”
Session participants will have the opportunity to engage in a dialogue about program development, the service-learning experience, and challenges as well as best practices in such partnerships. Ms. Turnage’s presentation will offer insight into how two of Lock Haven University’s missions support and reinforce one another in an international service-learning project.
Lock Haven University is an institution committed to international education. It is also home to allied health professional fields of academic study that have a mission to improve health care access to underserved populations regionally and internationally. These two missions are synthesized within an international service-learning program in the High Atlas Mountains in Morocco. Best practices of the program will be shared with session participants. After the session, participants can continue the dialogue and learn more about MountainServe’s work beyond the conference through MountainServe's Facebook page and Wiki.
