a stronger connection between the university and the country. This grant allowed her to attend a two-week International Education Administrators seminar in June.

“I am delighted and proud to have been selected as one of the eight grantees,” says Blair. “It was exciting to experience the Korean culture rsthand as part of a group of passionate individuals in the eld of international education.”

The seminar typically includes a week around Seoul, South Korea, visiting universities, institutions, and historical and cultural sites. The second week is generally spent outside Seoul.

Upon her return, Blair says she will pursue the goals outlined in her project statement: implementation of workshops for faculty and staff on intercultural communication and partnerships in Korea, development of faculty-led programs to Korea, and support of events where domestic and Korean students can connect.
