A $169,000 grant from the U.S. Department of
Education’s Office of Postsecondary Education will be used to study global
outsourcing and promote student and faculty exchanges with partner institutions
in India, Appalachian State University Officials say.
The two-year project is
being co-directed by International Education and Development associate vice
chancellor Dr. Jesse Lutabingwa and Assistant Dean for Graduate and
International Programs in the Walker College of Business Dr. Phillip Witmer.
According to a statement, the grant will allow ASU to build valuable
relationships with educational institutions and businesses in an increasingly
important part of the world. Projects planned from the grant include new course
development, student and faculty exchanges, faculty development and research,
and assessment of outsourcing in the Carolinas.
