Buturian and Solheim awarded Global Program and Strategy Alliance grant
The University's Global Program and Strategy Alliance awarded Linda Buturian (Senior Teaching Specialist, Postsecondary Teaching and Learning) and colleague Catherine Solheim (Associate Professor, Family Social Science) travel grants to fund their Mekong Initiative. Linda and Cathy will travel to northern Thailand in August and interview villagers and NGOs along the Mekong River to create digital stories about the impact of development of the Mekong on the villagers' culture and daily living. Buturian and Solheim will also develop contacts for and plan a new integrated course and a future Learning Abroad program centered on northern Thailand. They also received CEHD International Engagement grants for the Mekong Initiative.
