Stefanie Bator is a member of the History Department and will use the funds to visit Europe to visit with the UNHCR at the United Nations office in Geneva, Switzerland and important historical landmarks in Italy. She will use this experience to develop a new unit on humanitarian aid for the Fall 2014 Global Affairs class.
Lauren Fowler is a visual arts instructor at LFA and she will use the funds to go to Italy to explore a summer Artist in Resident program for students. She will visit Rome, Florence, and Venice to meet with contacts and potential artist residency locations. She hopes to get a clearer sense on how to develop the Artist in Residence program.
Congratulations to these two stand-out teachers!
