Afornalli receives Outstanding Graduate Student Award

Master’s student Joanne Afornalli (BA ’16) will receive a 2016-2017 Outstanding Graduate Student Award in the area of Experiential Learning. Joanne’s career at Northeastern is exemplary of the exciting ways in which Experiential Learning outside of the classroom combined with rigorous academic study inside the classroom facilitates personal and intellectual growth as well as innovative engagement in the work of addressing the social needs of our world. In her time as a PlusOne and Master’s student, Joanne has engaged in public outreach for the Our Marathon archive, co-ops in publishing, finance, and government, the creation of video for non-profit work with survivors of sexual assault in Kenya (where she travelled on a Dialogue of Civilizations), and archiving the stories and experiences of incarcerated women (as part of her thesis research/project).
