Nyack’s January 2020 Global Service-Learning Trips Prepare for Take-off

This week Nyack College faculty and students will embark on three exciting global service-learning (GS-L) trips.  These study abroad opportunities offer another form of personal transformational and educational enrichment outside of the classroom.

The Philippines is the destination for students led by Dr. Kwi Yun,  dean of the School of Social Work and Dr. Marie White, School of Education professor. This team will examine the nature and consequences of poverty, the societal and global responses to poverty, and the coping methods of people in the community. Through their service-learning activities, students will serve children in a local community.

Dr. Sue Lane Talley, dean of the School of Music and Dr. Dana Talley, music professor will journey with their students and explore fine arts in the city of Venice. A second group in Venice focused on Global Literature will be led by Nyack’s Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs Dr. David Turk.

A trip to Guatamela will be led by Dr. Inseon Hwang, dean of the School of Nursing along with adjunct professor Lauren Lebo (NC ’16).

Join us in prayer for the safety, good health and transformational experiences of all GS-L participants.
