Ten St. Lawrence University students, with Director of the Center for Diversity and Social Justice Margaret Kent Bass, traveled to the Jamaica community of Mount Vernon in January, working with the Global Volunteers organization to assist the community in re-building infrastructure there.

The students were enrolled in a half-credit course on the history and culture of Jamaica, and several conducted independent research projects while there. Bass reports that due to the excellent work done by the students, the community has asked that continuing connection between the University and Mount Vernon be established.

Participants were Bea Akuffo '08, Wes Ballantyne '08, Jessa Davis '08, Emilio Coletta '09, Marlise Hernandez '08, Elizabeth Mittlefehldt '08, Mukhaye Muchimuti '08, Susanne Pritchard '08, Jesus Ruiz '08 and Luke Tobin '09.
