The Association has posted the call for nominations for the AGLSP Annual Faculty Award, which honors “an outstanding faculty member who teaches within graduate liberal studies . . . [and who exemplifies] the qualities of interdisciplinary, liberal teaching and who [has] participated significantly in teaching or advising students and/or [has] actively participated in other faculty service in a graduate liberal studies program.”
If your program has a stellar faculty member, perhaps this is the time to make an nomination for this national award?
A number of GLS programs across North America offer study abroad courses that are open to students from other institutions. We’d be happy to post some of these here, so let us know about them, and send pictures when you get back too.
Most recently, Simon Fraser University asked to post their May/June 2010 Scotland course, which sounds very interesting indeed. Take a look at the course description and contact Stephen Duguid for more information.
Probably the only AGLSP member to sponsor a university press, the IU South Bend program this week will celebrate the publication of the first two books in its On Their Shoulders: Race Relations and Civil Rights in South Bend, Indiana series.
