Over the winter break, Drs. Hardigree and Howerton-Fox and students in their current "Education and Inequality in India" course teamed up with Br. Steve Rocha and the Nine is Mine children’s rights campaign in Kolkata, India. As part of the trip, organized by the Iona in Mission immersion program, they facilitated education sessions on human rights at St. Joseph’s High School in Kolkata and served as volunteers at Mother Teresa houses of hospitality throughout the city. The group, pictured in India above, will continue to examine issues explored during the trip in their coursework this semester.
