Jackson Recognized with 2014 Outstanding SL Faculty Award
Joyce Marie Jackson has been named the recipient of the 2014 Outstanding Service-Learning Faculty Award, presented annually by LSU’s Center for Community Engagement, Learning, and Leadership, or CCELL. The award recognizes a full-time faculty member who has demonstrated an exceptional commitment to implementing quality service-learning classes and engaged scholarship.
For many years, Jackson and students in her urban ethnography class have partnered with organizations in New Orleans, working alongside community members to collect and document history. Student projects have ranged from preserving Mardi Gras traditions to recreating personal histories lost during Hurricane Katrina. Jackson has published widely on her service-learning work and has taught a service-learning course in Haiti during spring intersession.
