Fulbright-Hays group reflects on successful trip

This summer, a contingent of faculty, students and educators led by UW-Green Bay Associate Prof. David Coury (Humanistic Studies) and international projects coordinator Jay Harris spent one month in Jordan. The group was traveling in advance of the formal establishment of the new Center for Middle East Studies and Partnerships at UW-Green Bay. “What impressed me the most was Jordan’s deep history, which spans the entire breadth of human history,” Assistant Prof. Heidi Sherman (Humanistic Studies/history) said of the trip.

While the Fulbright-Hays group was spending time in Jordan, another group with UW-Green Bay ties was also in the Middle East. A team of mentors in the Young Entrepreneurs Program spent time in Israel and Jordan doing follow-up work with the ten women who spent time in Green Bay this spring and with the dozens of others who applied for the program initially.
