Ann Myers and Cecil Bradfield

Public service. Community service-learning. Alternative Spring Break. Intergenerational learning. Lifelong learning. Aging and family issues. Public-private partnerships. Helping vulnerable populations. International experiences. Today we talk about these phenomena as the keys to the future. R. Ann Myers ('69), social work department head, and Cecil Bradfield ('69M), emeritus sociology professor, helped plant these seeds decades ago with programs like JMU's pioneering Community Service-Learning Center and the Lifelong Learning Institute. This foresighted duo was instrumental in putting Madison's caring educational culture into strategic action, giving students hands-on, educational experiences and offering society ideas and student energy to address real-world problems all at the same time.
