From Riverdale to Grenada


Professor Named Distinguished Scholar

Mount professors are recognized as experts in their fields of study. They continually excel in the classroom, conduct world-class research, and serve their professions and the community.

And they don’t slow down during spring break.

Ron Scapp, Professor of Humanities and Teacher Education, is just one example. This spring break, he will be traveling to St. George’s University—the oldest private medical school in the Caribbean—as a distinguished visiting scholar.

During his time at St. George’s, Dr. Scapp will be in-residency, conducting faculty and program development workshops. He will also be presenting two public lectures: one on international education and another related to his recently published anthology, Philosophy, Travel and Place: Being in Transit.

“I’m excited and proud that my work is of interest and value to scholars and educators domestically and internationally,” said Dr. Scapp as he learned of his invitation. “I’m proud to represent the College of Mount Saint Vincent and its faculty in such a manner—this trip highlights the quality of both.”

Dr. Scapp is the author, editor, and co-editor of numerous books on education, politics, and culture—and this isn’t the first time he’s been named a distinguished visiting scholar. In 2017, he traveled to De La Salle University in Manila on a Fulbright Program award.
