Education through community health and wellness

This Honors Thesis project was completed as a collaborative effort from four Honors College students who had participated previously in an immersive learning experience through the Teacher's College. Drawing upon the knowledge and perception they had gained from working in the Whitely community, the students co-taught an interdisciplinary Honors colloquium class to students involved in academic fields such as business, public relations, and health and well ness. The goals of the class were to expand students' perceptions of diversity, poverty, and community and their influence in the Whitely community. Students had the opportunity to participate in grant writing to continue the work that had already begun to create an intergenerational health and wellness facility behind Longfellow Elementary School in the Whitely community. Included in this Honors College thesis are the class log, teacher lesson plans, student work examples, and physical products of the class.
