CARE grant fosters grad. student research
Eighteen graduate students from the comparative and international developmental education program in the Department of Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development (OLPD) are learning from a unique opportunity to conduct research alongside faculty in such countries as Bangladesh, Cambodia, Honduras, and Malawi. Their experiences are part of a partnership between the college, CARE USA, and CARE's partners in eight developing countries.
The college is in the final year of an initial $1.1 million grant from CARE. OLPD assistant professor Joan DeJaeghere and Christopher Johnstone, the college's director of international initiatives and relations, are co-principal investigators. OLPD faculty members Fran Vavrus and David Chapman also lead research teams in some of the countries.
