Student researchers selected to travel to St. Petersburg
April 7, 2015
The JCCC team of Kait Bridges, Megan Gladbach, Kendyl McDougald and Emily Reno has been selected to take part in the International EcoReps student exchange in St. Petersburg, Russia, this May.
Student teams from across America submitted sustainability research, and JCCC’s project was a semester-long investigation into what JCCC students know about sustainable features on campus and how students describe their interactions with those features.
This international EcoReps exchange program is administered by KU’s Center for Russian, Eastern European, and Eurasian Studies (CREES) and is funded by a grant from the United States Department of States U.S.-Russia Peer-to-Peer Program.
In St. Petersburg, the JCCC team will describe their research and present to peer groups along with teams from the University of Oregon and University of Kansas. Students from St. Petersburg will join the JCCC team here on campus later in April for conversation and campus tours employing the brochure the JCCC students designed.
The JCCC team was coached by Kristy Howell, coordinator in JCCC’s Center for Sustainability.
