On Thursday, July 21, 2016, two distinguished BSOS adjunct faculty, Tom Mauriello, CCJS, and Marilyn London, Anthropology, shared their expertise with each other’s students. Tom Mauriello was presenting a two-week criminal justice workshop to 30 Zhejiang Police College students from China, hosted by BSOS’s Office of International and Executive Programs (OIEP). Marilyn London was presenting a three-week summer course in forensic sciences to 20 high school students participating in the Terp Young Scholars Academic Program.
During their normal three-hour lectures scheduled for that day, Tom and Marilyn switched their student groups and Tom taught the Terp Young Scholars about the crime laboratory and crime scene investigation at the CCJS Crime Laboratory in Marie Mount Hall, while Marilyn presented a hands-on class in forensic anthropology to the 30 Zhejiang Police College student police officers in the Anthropology Laboratory right next door in Woods Hall.
This is an exciting example of two BSOS disciples and faculty sharing their knowledge and expertise to benefit the learning experience of their students. Tom and Marilyn have been friends and colleagues for many years and are always invited guests to each other’s programs.
