2016-2017 is the Year of Food

The JCCTL is collaborating with the Center for the Study of Global Issues to support the first college-wide theme in the Gettysburg Cycle. The Gettysburg Cycle will consist of a repeating series of themes in which, in each of the four years constituting a cycle, the college community engages a policy issue of local, national, and global import. To learn more about this exciting initiative, visit the Year of Food website or email Caroline Hartzell. Here is a list of events that have been scheduled for the Year of Food.

Faculty honored:

Yeon-Su Kim (Associate Professor, Sunderman Conservatory of Music), recipient of the Luther W. and Bernice L. Thompson Distinguished Teaching Award.  This award is given to a recently tenured faculty member. Dr. Kim will give the Fall Honors Day Address on Friday, October 28th.
