On behalf of Bryan Waite - Program Director for Global and Intercultural Engagement and Janet Colvin - G/I Chair, we are asking for your assistance in getting the word out to faculty. We are putting together a workshop for faculty either currently teaching or who would like to teach G/I courses. We are asking for your help in getting some people to attend this workshop which will be held the last week of April. Would you please recommend 2-3 faculty from your department who are teaching G/I courses or who would be teaching one next year and help us encourage them to attend. We are hoping to get 20-30 faculty to attend the training this month. We will be offering them a stipend of $100 plus a free night stay in Heber, dinner, breakfast, and lunch.
