I have had the unique opportunity of working professionally with Ange Cooksey and also watching her train members. She is a profound speaker/presenter and has well over 10 years experience with service-learning and campus community partnerships. At ICC, we have called on her expertise numerous times — most recently to pull together campus/community research and write our “Crossroads and Common Ground” publication. Her expertise areas include Criterion Five, institutionalization of service-learning and civic engagement, and campus/community reciprocal relationships.

Brief Biography:
I am Senior Lecturer in Humanities, which means that I teach Philosophy, Religious Studies and English at Indiana University East. I have been a member of the I U East faculty for the past four years, and during this time, I have done extensive work in service-learning and civic engagement, both on my campus and across the state. For the past three years I have been a Faculty Fellow for Indiana Campus Compact, and for two of these years, I served as the Senior Fellow. During the past year, I have been involved in a number of research projects, one of which has focused exclusively on Criterion Five. Prior to coming to Indiana University East, I was the Student Service Coordinator and a faculty member in the Ball State University Honors College from 1983-2003. I direct the Baxter Neighborhood Help Center in Richmond, Indiana, a full service help facility created and maintained by service-learners from a variety of disciplines.
