Jalongo, professor emerita, Professional Studies in Education, recently
published the edited book Canine-Campus Connection: Roles for
Dogs in the Lives of College Students. Lorraine Guth, Department of
Counseling, and Theresa McDevitt, IUP Libraries, collaborated on three of the
chapters. Haley Romanko, Department of Counseling master’s student, had several
of her photographs featured in this publication.
Many college and university
personnel have implemented initiatives that offer students the documented
benefits of positive human-animal interaction. Accumulating evidence suggests
that assistance dogs, therapy dogs, and shelter dogs can support student
wellness and learning. This book published by Purdue University Press provides
authoritative, evidence-based guidance on bringing college students and canines
together in reciprocally beneficial ways.
