Deirdre Johnston, Interim Associate Dean for Global Education and Professor of Communication, received a new Great Lakes Colleges Association (GLCA) award of $27,000 for a project titled Global Health in the Liberal Arts Collaborative. The award period is 10 June 2019 through 14 June 2019.
This project will send eight Hope faculty members to the Universidad San Francisco de Quito (USFQ) to attend a Global Health Collaborative workshop that will bring Hope and USFQ faculty together to discuss global health courses, research, and associated community service. Potential outcomes of this project include new global health courses and program development, exploration of community-based global health program development, new models for collaboration with USFQ Galapagos and Tiputini research stations, and new health-related collaborations.
Congratulations, Dr. Johnston, on your new GLCA award!
