Description

In the General Education Program, Professor Mary Gayne’s HIST 150: Recent Issues in World History (two sections) partnered with the local Church World Services offices to host a public discussion of the global migrant crisis. The students designed and executed the entire event, so it is also a good example of engaged learning; in the sense that it informed students' understanding of global policies affecting migrants, it also advanced civic knowledge
