Webinar: Students and Spirituality – Student Motivation to Do Good
December 6 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
This webinar is an opportunity for Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC) and Campus Compact to explore the intersection of faith and service as it relates to student motivation to engage in civic engagement. Dr. Janett Cordoves will talk introduce the work of IFYC and research they have done around how students in faith communities engage with their campuses and communities through civic engagement. Dr. Cordoves will be joined by staff and students to talk about their experiences.
Janett I. Cordovés, Co-Curricular Partnerships Manager, equips and empowers campus professional staff to be interfaith leaders. Prior to joining the IFYC team, Janett worked in higher education for thirteen years, serving in various roles including student support services, such as residence life and crisis response, as well as in academic initiatives with first-year seminars, orientation, and senior experience courses. Janett has recently completed her doctorate in Ethical Leadership and successfully defended her research on the influence of spirituality on first-generation college students’ level of grit and equanimity. In her spare time, she volunteers with Chicago Scholars and the Food Pantry.
