Beth Warner, an assistant professor of human services, and Elon alum Cara Leidy have had an article published in the fall 2008 issue of the Journal of Human Services.

“Latino women’s perception of gender equity in household labor and its relationship to marital satisfaction” was the end result of Leidy’s research as an Elon College Fellow. She now works in Washington at the Higher Achievement Program, an organization dedicated to promoting academic achievement among high-talent, low-income students in the D.C. metro area.

Warner also co-authored a paper with assistant professor Judy Esposito on immersion service-learning in the International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.

In “What’s not in the syllabus:  Faculty transformation, role modeling and role conflict in immersion service-learning courses,” the duo examined issues experienced by faculty who teach service-learning courses where faculty actually live with the students such as “A Call to Service” (where Warner and students spend a week in D.C. providing service to different organizations) and “Island Living: Service to and learning from the Manamko (elders) of Guam.”

The article will be published this fall.
