ESU president to present findings from Middle East tripMay 10, 2011
One Middle Eastern country that does not have enough higher-education classroom spots for its high school graduates. And another country wanting to create a national research agenda to focus on national issues. These are just some of the needs that Emporia State President Michael R. Lane discovered during a 10-day trip to the Middle East.
Lane will present his findings to the ESU community and general public at 5:30 p.m. May 16 in Bruder Theatre in King Hall. Part information and part travelogue, Lane’s talk will be followed by a question-and-answer period and conclude with light refreshments.
During his trip, Lane discovered not only opportunities for Middle Eastern students to come to Emporia State University but also situations in which ESU faculty and researchers could help their counterparts in Oman and Jordan.
Lane was one of seven college and university presidents and senior chief executive officers selected for the 2011 Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad Program. He was the only delegate from Kansas.
