Jeanne Moseley, director of the Global Health Program and senior lecturer in the Division of Nutritional Sciences, has been awarded Cornell University’s George D. Levy Faculty Award. The honor, part of Engaged Cornell, recognizes a faculty member whose collaborative efforts within the community have resulted in exemplary and sustained community-engaged projects. Moseley was honored for her leadership of the division’s Tanzania Summer Program, which she helped create in 2007. Katherine McComas, vice provost for engagement and land-grant affairs, named Moseley the 2019 recipient Dec. 3.
Since joining the division’s Global Health Program in 2006 as a program coordinator, Moseley has worked closely with faculty and staff in the division and in other Cornell colleges to develop global service learning and internship programs to promote student engagement in global and public health. She is currently responsible for the direct administration and implementation of Global Health partnerships and summer programs in the Dominican Republic, Tanzania and Zambia.
“Jeanne is an enthusiastic, collaborative and dedicated colleague, who cares deeply for her students, her colleagues and for the sustained development of meaningful and reciprocal partnerships,” said Dr. Rachel Manongi, associate professor in the Institute of Public Health at Kilimanjaro Christian Medical University College (KCMUCo) in Tanzania, which partners with the Global Health Program to enhance the cross-cultural competence of Tanzanian medical students and Cornell undergraduates.
