Photos, video, article: Visit by Chilean sustainability delegation

UW-Green Bay’s partnership with Chile’s Universidad del Desarrollo took another step forward earlier this spring with a visit to Green Bay by about 15 Chilean master’s degree students and faculty in sustainability management and industrial engineering. Hosted by Prof. John Katers of Natural and Applied Sciences, the delegation attended the Heating the Midwest conference and toured green companies including FEECO, ENCAP, the Green Bay municipal wastewater plant, and others. Their Chile-to-Wisconsin trip followed a 2013 visit to Santiago by a UW-Green Bay delegation led by Katers, who earned a Fulbright Specialist position for the purpose of pursuing an ongoing partnership on topics of sustainability, pollution control and waste management. Sorry we didn’t post all this earlier, but we have more including a link to the Chilean students’ short video recap of the trip, photos, and a Santiago newspaper article.

Music’s Meredith Livingston receives Fulbright grant to teach, perform in Brazil

UW-Green Bay Music Prof. Sarah Meredith Livingston will head back to Brazil later this month (and again next year) after receiving a Fulbright Specialist grant in U.S. Studies (General) at the University of Sao Paulo-Ribeirao Preto, Brazil. The grant is an extension of a previous award Meredith Livingston earned in 2011 and that brought her to teach and perform in Brazil in both 2011 and 2012. The current grant includes two invitations, one for this year (May 21-June 4) and another for next May. During this year’s trip, Meredith Livingston will present a full recital and teach American repertoire and diction for singers. She also will work with community choruses in the area, and is hoping to lay the groundwork for future faculty visits and collaborations. Our news release has full details.
