New Horizons Forum Presents “Mongolian Families: Modern Nomadic Life”

Alfred State’s New Horizons Forum is hosting “Mongolian Families: Modern Nomadic Life”, a presentation by Dr. Lou Ann Woolman on Monday, Nov. 12 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the School of Engineering Technology (SET) building, Room 215. A reception will be held before the presentation at 6 p.m. in the SET gallery outside Room 215.

Dr. Lou Ann Woolman’s presentation is the result of her recent work in Mongolia where she lectured and visited families, communities, and cultural sites recently as part of a select group of international scholars and practitioners attending a conference at the National University of Mongolia in Ulan Bator, Mongolia. The conference was sponsored by the Psychological Research Center at the University and by the International Family Strengths Network.

Prior to joining Alfred State’s Social and Behavioral Sciences Department, associate professor Woolman served as a faculty member and administrator at a number of colleges in the Midwest. She has a doctorate degree in Marriage and Family Science from the University of Nebraska and is a scholar and experienced mental health therapist.

The New Horizons Forum, sponsored by the School of Arts and Sciences, showcases current scholarly, creative, and public service work by faculty, students, professional staff, and invited guests. It is guided by a campus-wide Steering Committee whose goal is to enrich the intellectual life of the institution.
