A note from Kathy Leo-Nyquist: My Visit to the Dublin Campus
Hello all. I had the good fortune of visiting the Dublin campus in late September. We have ten Education students at the campus this fall, so it was very timely for me to go this semester. It was wonderful meeting the Dublin faculty and staff and to see the classrooms and spaces where our students study. The highlight of my trip was spending the day with one of our Dublin faculty, Darren Kelly, who teaches the EHS course, Community Advocacy and Inquiry in Dublin, through which our students have the incredible opportunity to work one full day in a Dublin school or social service agency. Visiting five different school sites was an eye-opener for me and I was gratified to see that our students are truly getting a life changing through another culture experience. Many thanks to Stephen Robinson and Lilly Johnsson for welcoming me and Cinse Bonino to the campus!
