The course, led by assistant professor Ocek Eke in the School of Communications, returns to North Carolina on Jan. 20, 2008.

Eke is joined in leading the group byLynda Butler-Storsved, an instructor in the health and human performancedepartment. The trip is partially funded by a grant from Elon’s ProjectPericles.
