Three RU Faculty awarded McGlothlin international travel grants

Three Radford University faculty members have been awarded McGlothlin International Faculty Travel Grants by the International Education Advisory Board.

The McGlothlin International Travel Grant recipients are:

  • Dr. Don Langrehr, professor of Teacher Education and Leadership, for developing teaching opportunities for RU students in schools in the Mexican state of Oaxaca
  • Dr. Laura Vernon, assistant professor of English, for developing an interdisciplinary environmental communication study abroad program for students in the sciences, social sciences, humanities, communications, business and health fields
  • Dr. Patricia Winter, assistant professor of music therapy, for an investigation of the use of music in the classrooms and communities of Malawi for students with disabilities

The recipients received grants of approximately $1,000 to support international travel and internationalize the RU curriculum. McGlothlin Faculty International Travel Grant recipients are challenged to enhance the international dimensions of their class or classes, to internationalize a department or college's curriculum or do preliminary planning for study abroad or exchange programs.

With the support of the McGlothlin Family Endowment, these international travel grants are awarded annually to Radford University faculty. Preference is given to faculty developing future study abroad programs and/or comparative courses in their discipline.
