Psychology & Writing LCOM Welcomes Ampersand Families Panel
The English and Psychology departments at Inver Hills Community College hosted a learning community (LCOM) youth panel Thursday, October 11, 2018, in the Fine Arts building on the college’s main campus in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota.

Lisa DuRose, PhD, Inver Hills English faculty, reported that the learning community (LCOM) is a combination of two courses: English 1108: Research and Writing Skills and Psychology 1101: Introduction to Psychology. Students in the Psychology & Writing Learning Community are conducting research on the foster care system in Minnesota.

“The panel was composed of youth from an organization called Ampersand Families,” Lisa said. “The panelists are in the process of being adopted and shared their experiences with our students.”
