college students sit in Kirby 104 with two elementary school students in masksWFMZ-TV captured footage of fifth-graders from Cheston Elementary School visiting a Lafayette College international relations class on Tuesday. The visit was part of The Landis Center for Community Engagement’s Connected Classrooms initiative, which promotes college and career awareness, exploration, and readiness among Easton area students, with the goal of presenting opportunities for innovative teaching and learning to Lafayette faculty and students.

Students from Cheston interacted with Seo-Hyun Park, associate professor of political science within government and law, and students in her Intro to International Politics course. Lafayette students led small group discussions with the fifth-graders about global issues and how international organizations (including the United Nations, World Health Organization) have tried to solve the world’s most pressing problems.

Paxinosa Elementary School students came to campus Thursday to interact with David Sunderlin, associate professor of geology, and student members of the geology club.
