Lynda Carroll is an anthropologist and archaeologist, and teaches at SUNY Broome Community College in Binghamton, New York. She is ABD at Binghamton University, SUNY, and has a BA in Anthropology from Queens College, CUNY. Her current interests include community engagement in heritage studies and cultural heritage management. She has also been involved in developing Virtual Exchange (VE) programs for community college students. Due to the high costs of international programs, and the economic constraints that many community college students disproportionally contend with, these students historically have limited access to study abroad experiences. At a time when international study abroad is being lauded as a pathway to scholarships, transferring to four-year institutions, and job opportunities in a globalized job market, Carroll believes that developing pedagogy to effectively support VE programs for community college students is a social justice issue. So far, her students have participated in VE programs with faculty and students in Mexico and Brazil.
