10th anniversary of Gulf South Summit held in Hattiesburg

Wednesday morning the executive committee of the Gulf-South summit began preparations for the summit's registration.

The Gulf-South summit started 10 years ago at the University of Southern Mississippi with the goal of helping faculty members incorporate community service into their courses as a teaching tool.

The faculty teaches service-learning while the students engage in hands-on experience outside of the classroom.

According to Dick Conville, executive committee chair, through this conference faculty from universities around the country come to learn new ways of teaching civic responsibility or civic education.

The summit starts Wednesday and ends Friday with keynote speaker Krista Tippett, host of National Public Radio's On Being. Tippett is an author and journalist.
