Dylan Moore, Ottawa, was one of five Southwestern College students selected to attend the Universities Fighting World Hunger Summit March 2-4 in Overland Park. The students will present their research related to food insecurity in a poster presentation.
Universities Fighting World Hunger represents a campus best practice in international programming and human sustainability. It creates a learning environment where intellectual discovery and social responsibility converge in pursuit of a sustainable world — a world that protects our natural environment and enhances human health and well-being for present and future generations.
The project was executed under the direction of Cheryl Rude, associate professor for leadership studies, in fulfillment of the requirements for SOCS 307 Leadership Research. According to Rude, the five students submitted their leadership community action research project, “The Frequency of Food Insecurity in Undergraduate Students,” to the Universities Fighting World Hunger Summit and were selected to attend.
Moore, a member of Worship Outreach at the college, also is featured in a CD, “No Secrets,” that will be available through iTunes and Amazon beginning Wednesday. A listening party to launch the release of the CD will be Wednesday on the campus of Southwestern College. There is no admission charge to attend and the community is invited to attend.
