Professor Debra Swanson Receives Mentoring and Service-Learning Awards

Deb Swanson, Professor of Sociology, has been named the recipient of two awards that recognize her commitment to service to the community: one for her own dedication as a volunteer and another for her role in guiding students in learning how to make a difference.

In November 2013, Deb received the Premier Mentor Award presented each month to a mentor involved with programs partnered with the Ottawa County Mentoring Collective (OCMC) for her work as a volunteer with Total Trek Quest (TTA), a running program for elementary-age boys. 

In February 2014, Deb received a Michigan Campus Compact (MiCC) Faculty/Staff Community Service-Learning Award for emphasizing service-learning in the classroom at Hope.  Swanson's integration of service-learning into her teaching provides students with hands-on experience serving with local agencies as a complement to their classroom lessons.
