MC professor, students to speak on 'Ecuador Immersion'

A Monmouth College professor and three students who spent 10 days this summer in Ecuador will be the featured speakers at Monmouth College’s next International Luncheon on Nov. 14 at noon in the Whiteman-McMillan Highlander Room of the Stockdale Center. The title of their talk is “Ecuador Immersion.”
James Godde, one of two faculty members who led the trip, will be joined at the luncheon by Clarissa Henby of Metamora, Sarah Houston of Winfield and Emily Tysma of Hillsdale. Beginning and ending in Quito, they were part of a group that circled Ecuador, visiting various equatorial ecosystems in addition to observing the many cultural differences between Ecuador and U.S. The other faculty member on the trip was psychology professor Kristin Larson.
A buffet lunch, featuring international foods, is available. A meal ticket may be purchased for $7.50 at the luncheon, but lunch reservations must be made by Nov. 11 by calling 309-457-2253. Anyone may attend the presentation without obligation to purchase the meal.
