Project for Freedom and Justice, a local nonprofit organization assisting the
wrongfully imprisoned, received help from students enrolled in a first-year Sociology
seminar, Gender, Power, and Violence, taught by Angela Hattery and Earl Smith. The
students processed letters from inmates to help identify prisoners who were good
candidates for assistance.
Three student groups spent a part of their winter recess serving the poor and
disadvantaged in other countries. In December and January, thirty-seven student vol-
unteers and seven faculty or staff advisors traveled to India, Costa Rica, and Vietnam.
The City of Joy Scholars Program took eleven student volunteers to Calcutta, India,
to work with the Missionaries of Charity. Students changed beds, bathed patients,
cleaned wards, and fed and comforted the sick and dying. Twelve other students trav-
eled to Lam Dong Province in Vietnam with the University’s Peacework Ambassadors
