UC Faculty & Staff… Going Global
Tracking Gorillas in the rainforests of the Democratic Republic of the Congo is all in a day’s work for Dr. Richard A. Beck (Geography). What? Geography? Yep, an expert on remote sensing, Dr. Beck is training DRC park rangers how to use geographic information systems (GIS) in order to monitor the health of forests and endangered species in their national parks. With his Fulbright Award he is collaborating with the Congolese Institute for Conservation and Nature. This award provides the training and the needed tools. But perhaps most important, it is designed for growth and sustainability. Those who have benefitted by Dr. Beck’s instruction, will go on to teach others.
UC International Workshop Series
UC International Workshop Series are for faculty currently leading or interested in leading student abroad. Workshops cover a variety of subjects on how to prepare yourself, as an employee of UC, to travel internationally with students and best practices both in the planning stages and while abroad. Topics will include leader roles and responsibilities, safety, risk prevention, liability and limitations, insurance for you and students, health issues and preparation, student conduct, pre-departure orientations, crisis management, etc. UC International recommends that you participate in some combination of our workshop series at least once a year as we are always updated our best practices and integrating new information.
