Dr. Lisa McCool met with Honors Program members and guests on Nov. 6, 2013, to discuss the Peruvian economy and climate. Dr. McCool also described the trip she will take to that country with 12 students next May.

Dr. McCool, an assistant professor in the college’s Business Department, and the students will bring basic medical supplies and clothing with them to distribute to new and expectant mothers in rural Peru. Students accompanying Dr. McCool may also choose to visit Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca.

The Honors Program was created to encourage motivated, curious students who had achieved high academic standing to explore some aspect of their program in greater depth and to broaden and deepen their awareness of themselves as responsible, contributing members of a larger community. Honors Program participants complete a series of seminars, as well as a substantial honors project, and 10 hours of volunteer community service.
