To Concordia's permanent faculty:

Our colleagues from MacEwan University are organizing a Faculty Study Tour to Mexico in 2017 and are kindly offering a spot for one CUE faculty (two colleagues went with the MacEwan colleagues on the China Study Tour a few years ago). Here is the initial itinerary:

Saturday, May 13 – Fly to Guadalajara

Sunday, May 14 – Cultural day in Guadalajara; Tlaquepaque

Monday, May 15 – Friday, May 19 – university and other visits in Guadalajara (e.g. ITESM, UNIVA, Universidad de Guadalajara, ITESO, Universidad Marista, Canadian Consulate, Jalisco Government; also Lake Chapala, Tequila town)

Friday, May 19 – Cultural day in San Miguel de Allende (a UNESCO World Heritage Town)

Sunday, May 21 – Travel to Guanajuato; visit Universidad de Guanajuato

Monday, May 22 – Travel to Mexico City

Tuesday, May 23 – Wednesday, May 24 – university and other visits in Mexico City (e.g. UNAM, Frida Khalo, Anthropology Museum, Sun and Moon Pyramids)

Thursday, May 25 – Return to Edmonton

Our colleagues write us: "As you see, it is roughly 50/50 cultural competency and university visits, thus again a professional development opportunity of some value. We enjoyed having your [Concordia] faculty with us in China, so I wanted to ensure you knew we'd be happy to discuss Concordia participation again this time."

"Our deadline for expressions of interest (to include name, department, and a maximum 250-word statement of how participation is expected to have an impact on the participant's teaching and/or research) is Nov. 4."

If you are interested, I am happy to talk with you.
