UW-Green Bay’s Davis heading for Germany
Mathematics Prof. Greg Davis, chair of UW-Green Bay’s Natural and Applied Sciences academic unit, has been invited to travel to Hessen, Germany for a 10-day trip beginning Saturday (Nov. 14). Davis and business Prof. Claire Kilian of UW-River Falls will visit a half dozen German universities to facilitate student exchanges and study-abroad collaborations. While there, the UW System faculty members will participate in interviews with student applicants seeking state support (from Hessen, also known as “Hesse”) for their studies in Wisconsin. Davis and Kilian will also visit academic departments in their areas of interest to discuss mutual research interests and possible topics of student or faculty exchange. Upon their return, the UW educators will be available as resources for faculty members and campuses statewide interested in pursuing Hessen-Wisconsin collaborations. All expenses for their visit are being paid for by the German state.
