Richard Herdlein, assistant professor of educational foundations
Richard Herdlein, assistant professor of educational foundations, has been chosen to receive a 2004 State University of New York Chancellor's Award for Internationalization.
The award will support a three-week summer study tour to Eastern Europe and Scandinavia in which students will study comparative educational systems while designing individualized coursework related to their academic interests and programs of study. Students will earn 3 to 6 credit hours.
The Baltic State of Estonia will serve as the host country. Students will participate in interactive seminars, research, and cross-cultural experiences at the University of Tartu, the largest institution of higher learning in Estonia. Additional learning opportunities will be available through educational visits to Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, and Helsinki, Finland.
The Chancellor's Award for Internationalization is intended to support increased opportunities for SUNY students to gain international experiences, as well as support world peace and economic development through cross-cultural understanding.
Applications for the program are available from the International Education Office, Cleveland Hall 416, 878-4620. For more information, contact Herdlein at 878-4200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
