WCU is one of 21 universities stretching from Harvard to Texas Southern to Berkeley selected to participate this spring in the Wikimedia Foundation’s Public Policy Initiative. Graduate students will explore topics from patient centered outcomes in health care to policies governing how the world would respond in the event of contact with intelligent alien life.
Coulter Faculty Commons staff members Robert Crow, instructional developer, and Laura Cruz, instructional developer and interim director, recently presented an interactive session at the Professional and Organizational Development Conference held in St. Louis.
The recent “Integrating Boyer into Your Institutional Culture” retreat sponsored by Western Carolina University was so well received that the retreat could develop into an annual event, said Laura Cruz, interim director of Coulter Faculty Commons.
Laura Cruz worked with scholars Benjamin Kaplan and Marybeth Carlson to produce “Myth in History, History in Myth: Proceedings of the Third International Conference of the Society for Netherlandic History (New York: June 5-6, 2006)” and Willem Frijhoff to prepare “Boundaries and their Meanings in the History of the Netherlands” for publication.
