Colombia – here we come!

We are thrilled to have been invited by colleagues in the Universidad Autónoma de Manizales to join them in early June and develop a collaborative DEED program in the beautiful state of Caldas, in Colombia’s coffee region. Our faculty’s trip is made possible by local partnerships, and our entreprenurially-driven students are raising their own funds to be able to join the trip. See more at http://gofundme.com/DEED2012 and stay tuned to this website for our live blogs while in Colombia.
