JWCC Sociology Instructor Co-Presents at Humanitarian Integration Workshop

Tiffany FrericksTiffany Frericks, John Wood Community College sociology instructor, recently organized a workshop to build support for integrating humanitarian principles (IHL) into college curricula.  The event featured Dr. Robert Wilz from the American Red Cross and Dr. Michaeleone Cox, Illinois State University political and government associate professor.

The workshop focused on the growing need to prepare students to live successfully and peacefully in a global community as both interdependence and conflict grow.  The workshop allowed attendees to experience first-hand how faculty at other institutions are integrating the principles of peacebuilding, conflict resolution and IHL into college courses.  JWCC and Quincy University faculty and staff attended the workshop.    

The workshop was co-sponsored by the American Red Cross and the JWCC Professional Development Committee.
