Faculty Releases Video on Corozal Belize Peace Village Initiative

Karen Breitkreuz, faculty in the School of Nursing, has released a video about the experiences of students who participated in year two of the Boise State–Corozal, Belize Peace Village initiative.

Breitkreuz, along with Anthony Songer, professor in the Department of Construction Management, led sixteen Boise State students enrolled in a service-learning class, titled “Global Citizenship and Social Responsibility, to work with Chan Chen primary school in the Corozal district in Belize over spring break in March 2014. This was the second year in a collaborative effort by the Colleges of Engineering and Health Sciences, the Honors College, and the University Foundations program to provide Boise State students unmatched educational, cultural, and professional engagement and enrichment.

While the students conducted a “Healthy Lifestyles” camp for the school children, built a chicken coop and renovated a playground, Breitkreuz interviewed the students on film. She has since created a video showcasing the transformative cultural and service experiences of the Boise State students.
