Jean Gounard, director, International Student Affairs, was selected by Jacques Chirac, president of France, as a knight (chevalier) in the National Order of Merit, one of two French national orders, on November 14. The honor recognizes Gounard's career-long efforts to promote positive relations between the United States and his native France through education, the exchange of scholars, and heightened awareness of the Francophone world.
As part of the Committee for the Study of Understanding Community and Peace, Gounard helped coordinate peace week activities, culminating with the second annual peace conference, held on campus October 24 in conjunction with United Nations Day. As part of the college's observance of National French Week, he chaired the seminar "Pleading Guilty in French Law." He also chaired a program on the Francophone world and spoke on the Louisiana Purchase of 1803 on November 6. In addition, he published his article "Le français dans les universités américaines d'aujourd'hui" in Revue de l'AMOPA: Association des membres de l'Ordre des Palmes Académiques (no. 162, October 2003).
