MHC Brooks to host Chocolate in a Global Context

February 28, 2013

MHC’s Brooks campus invites faculty, staff and members of the public to join students in the My First Year program at “Chocolate in a Global Context” next Thursday evening.

Brad Churchill, CEO of Chokolat in Calgary will be speaking to the students and community members about his business in the context of globalization. Churchill’s company is unique in that it imports cocoa directly rather than importing already made chocolate, as other companies do.
Students in the My First Year program learned about globalization in a key course last semester, and this semester a key theme within their courses is food.

“My First Year is unique as a university transfer program because it integrates its ten courses into a cohort program in which students interact closely with one another and their instructors,” said Avril Torrence, facilitator and instructor. “They also experience the classroom outside of the campus through field study and see the community in the classroom, as in this event.”
The event is open to the public and is free of charge. It will include an introduction of My First Year, Churchill’s presentation, and reception involving chocolate product samples. The event runs from 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. in the MHC Brooks campus lecture theatre (room 170).
