Monmouth Associates talk to highlight the impact of studying abroad

09/14/2017
MONMOUTH, Ill. – Two Monmouth College professors will discuss the benefits of students traveling and studying abroad at the first Monmouth Associates luncheon of the academic year.

Psychology Professor Joan Wertz and Assistant Professor of History Michelle Damian will speak at noon Sept. 21 in the Whiteman-McMillan Highlander Room of Stockdale Center.

Monmouth College students recently explored the psychology of the Holocaust on a short-term study abroad trip that toured sites in Berlin, Warsaw, Krakow and Prague. Wertz and Damian will discuss the rationale for the trip, the students’ experiences abroad and the increasing importance of study-abroad programs.

The other Monmouth Associates programs this academic year will be held Nov. 16, Feb. 15 and May 17.

The cost for a buffet lunch is $10 ($9 for Monmouth faculty and staff). Reservations can be made by calling 309-457-2231 by Sept. 19 or by email at alumni@monmouthcollege.edu.

A free shuttle van transports passengers from two locations to every Associates luncheon. The van stops at the northeast quadrant of the Public Square at 11:45 a.m. and at the Faith United Presbyterian Church parking lot at around 11:50 a.m. It returns to both locations immediately following the program.

Shuttle reservations can be made also by calling 309-457-2231.

Parking is available along North Ninth Street and in the parking lot near the Stockdale Center.
