Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

Lin Aanonsen, Biology and Christy Hanson, Institute for Global Citizenship, will present "Kenya: what elephants, mosquitoes and ground-breaking research have in common.  Exploring a new model for scholarship, study away and experiential learning." Aanonsen and Hanson traveled to Kisumu, Kenya over the January term to explore a novel semester away alternative for students.  The semester will include formal study, independent research and an internship with the Kenyan Medical Research Institute (KEMRI) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC).  They will describe how faculty relationships and scholarship with partner research institutions may be augmented to include formal study away alternatives for students. All faculty are welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
