Global Campuses Excited for #GivingTuesday on November 27th, 2018!

What is #GivingTuesday?  It's a chance to ensure education and wholeness for all our neighbors after the swirl and bustle of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend!  #GivingTuesday is a global giving movement launched by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in countries around the world.  Celebrate Thanksgiving Thursday, shop Black Friday, browse Cyber Monday, and remember good causes on Giving Tuesday.  

Global Campuses Foundation is participating for the first time.  Your support on #GivingTuesday will support ongoing, year-round educational and enrichment opportunities for Global Campus participants.  Below, you can read examples of things our participants are accomplishing  this semester!  And we'll be in touch again next week with exciting news about expansion in Vermont and overseas.

Welcome to GCF's Newest Colleague, Lacy Gross                (September 2018)

Lacy is excited to join the GCF team as Academic Coordinator beginning in September of 2018.  She moved to Vermont from Texas, where she was a high school English teacher for nearly a decade.  She was a part of a team that collaborated and developed curriculum for 23 school districts across Texas and was named “Teacher of the Year” in her school district in 2016.  She is currently working on her master’s degree in Learning Technologies from the University of North Texas.  Lacy lives in Quechee with her husband and two kids; having recently moved to the area she enjoys getting outdoors and exploring, traveling and reading. Lacy shares: "I could not be more pleased to be a part of the GCF team.  I found out early in life that my calling is in education. I admire GCF's mission and commitment to lifelong learning for everyone. My strength is helping people reach their fullest potential and I'm thrilled to support and learn with the participants of GCF."


GCF is excited to announce Anthea Lavallee as its newest board member!  Anthea has almost two decades of experience as an educator, development professional, and nonprofit leader.  Anthea holds a Master's Degree in Biological Anthropology, and throughout her career has combined a curiosity about the natural world with an abiding passion for community building. 
Currently the Executive Director of the Hubbard Brook Research Foundation, she has directed a range of environmental and zoological education programs in New England and across the U.S.  She also has deep experience in the field of disability culture. 
In addition to serving years ago as the Development Director for GCF, Anthea served as the first Executive Director of Zack's Place, an enrichment center for persons with disabilities in Woodstock, VT.  She has volunteered as a board member and program provider at a variety of organizations serving persons with disabilities throughout the Upper Valley region. Anthea said "I'm delighted to join the GCF board and am proud to advocate for what I believe is a truly innovative approach to empowering people who experience disability.  GCF represents a way of thinking about ability that recognizes the full spectrum of skills and challenges that make up every human experience.  I carry the GCF mindset with me in every aspect of my life and work."
"We are delighted to welcome, and re-welcome, Anthea to the GCF team," said GCF Executive Director Matthew DeGroot.  "Her long-standing commitment to GCF's mission, and her track record of excellence in serving communities in the Upper Valley, make her a perfect fit for helping Global Campuses benefit as many people as possible, in as many places as possible, across New England."

Community Spotlight

All Global Campuses are community campuses. They are in the community, they create community, they give back to the community, and they strengthen community. Participants of a Global Campus open up new pathways to engage in authentic, meaningful, and fulfilling relationships with each other, and with the broader community in which they live.

Each semester, Global Campus participants at all 9 New England campuses look for new opportunities to use community venues as classrooms. Teaching in different locations offers fresh perspectives on course topics, and new insights into community resources that GC participants can take advantage of in their everyday lives. Read more
