Photos: Welcoming faculty from Peru

Chancellor Thomas K. Harden (center) and members of the UW-Green Bay community welcomed a five-person delegation from the Universidad Nacional de Tumbes (Peru) at a reception April 16 at the Weidner Center.

The visitors are, front row, Diana Miranda Ynga (a specialist in education and reading) and Yrene Esperanza Urbina Rojas (health and nursing); and, back row, Wayky Luy Navarrete (economics), Jalmer Fidel Campana Olaya (agronomy) and John Estuardo Sandoval Ramayoni (aquaculture).

The visitors are faculty and administrators with Tumbes, which funded the two-week stay to gain insight on American higher education, K-12 education in Wisconsin and this region’s relative success in tackling water-quality issues. The visit also represents a deepening of ties between the Peruvian university and UW-Green Bay since the schools’ leaders signed a partnership agreement in 2009.
