Clifford wins Alden Service-Learning Award

Joan Clifford was nominated by colleagues for service as one of the “madres fundadoras” of service-learning within the Spanish Language Program at Duke, and has won the 202 Alden Service-Learning Award. In the words of one nominator, Joan “believes in the ideals of service-learning and has shown a steadfast commitment to the community partners that she has sought out and maintained… never content just to have students in Spanish happen to ‘volunteer’ somewhere where people might speak a word of Spanish, but insisting on the meaningful integration of the service-experience with course content.”  We’re also proud to have Joan as a colleague who contributes to scholarly research on and presentation of her work with the Spanish Service-Learning courses.
