UNC Faculty Present at Partner University in Lithuania

The University of Northern Colorado and Šiauliai University in Lithuania have an established partnership that supports student and faculty exchanges, research, and ongoing professional development between the two universities.

As part of the collaborative, faculty members from the School of Special Education were recently invited to present at an international scientific conference on "Social Welfare: An Interdisciplinary Approach" hosted by the Faculty of Social Welfare and Disability Studies at Šiauliai University.

Presenters included Rashida Banerjee, associate professor of Special Education, and Harvey Rude, professor and director of the School of Special Education at UNC.

The conference aim was to develop attitudes of collaboration, social participation and enablement, on the local and international levels, to encourage interdisciplinary research and evidence-based practice in the areas of social welfare and special education.

Conference participants from the United States, Latvia, Ukraine, Estonia, and Lithuania participated in the events.

Rude was interviewed during the conference. Watch the clip under the May 21 heading at http://www.unco.edu/news/innews.aspx
