Two Kansas Educators Part of Delegation to Brazil


Two Fort Hays State University administrators are part of a delegation of U.S. higher education officials that is planning to travel to Brazil next month.

The visit led by the New York-based Institute of International Education is scheduled from May 5 through May 10. The delegation will include representatives from 15 American higher education institutions, including Fort Hays State.

Representing the western Kansas university are Assistant Provost for Strategic Partnerships Cindy Elliott and Graduate School Dean Tim Crowley.

Fort Hays State says the group will meet with officials from both public and private higher education institutions in Brazil and travel to five cities, including Sao Paulo and the capital of Brasilia.
