Feb. 19: Cornell Speaker to Discuss Cultivating Socially Responsible Global Citizens

Dr. Richard Kiely, a senior fellow at Cornell University’s Office of Engagement Initiatives and co-author of a forthcoming book on community-based global learning, will discuss “Cultivating Socially Responsible Global Citizens: The Role of Higher Education in Today’s International Climate,” on Monday, Feb. 19, at 7 p.m. in a free, public lecture in the Gallery Theater, Elaine Langone Center.

Dr. Kiely was part of the team that developed a groundbreaking, $150 million, 10-year initiative to establish community engagement and real-world learning experiences as the hallmark of the Cornell undergraduate experience. He regularly conducts seminars and workshops on course design, experiential learning, service-learning, community-based participatory action research, assessment and program evaluation. Recognized nationally as a John Glenn Scholar in Service-Learning for longitudinal research that led to the development of a transformative service-learning model, Dr. Kiely also served as the faculty director of the Cornell Urban Scholars Program (CUSP) and the Cornell Urban Mentor Initiative (CUMI), both of which are university-wide, interdisciplinary service-learning programs. He co-authored the forthcoming book Community-Based Global Learning: The Theory and Practice of Ethical Engagement at Home and Abroad, which will be published in July.

He comes to Bucknell as a consultant in the University’s work to create a Civic Action Plan. His visit is supported by the Bucknell Office of the President, Office of the Provost, University Lectureship Committee, Office of Global and Off-Campus Education, the Teaching and Learning Center, and the Office of Civic Engagement.
