Posted on: Mar 24, 2017


Dr. Xin Chen will be leading our first Faculty-Led Study Abroad (FLSA) class to Brazil in May. Five students will take BIO 319 in three different locations in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, South Brazil:

The partner Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul (PUCRS) main campus in the capital Porto Alegre, the PUCRS Environmental Science research facilities Pro-Mata, in the hills and mountains of the state 4h from Porto Alegre, and at the Federal University of Rio Grande (FURG) in the harbour city of Rio Grande, 5h South from Porto Alegre by the ocean. The group will be conducting studies in the natural scenes of São Francisco de Paula and in marine biology in the city of Rio Grande, which was former capital of the state between 1835 and 1845. A new contact is starting here with this public Federal University in the city of Rio Grande (FURG).
