Update from the chair
Welcome to the 2013 edition of the Institute of International Studies e-Newsletter. As you shall see, it has been an exciting and rewarding year. The newsletter details the accomplishments of Institute faculty, students and alumni as well as the campus International Affairs Organization. We began the academic year with the exciting news that Carrie Gruenloh ’94 had been named Bradley’s Outstanding Young Graduate, and we closed the year learning that Mikalynn Katlack ’15 and Laura Doolin ’13, in collaboration with Dr. Jeanie Bukowski, had won the President’s Award at Bradley’s annual Undergraduate Research Expo.
The exciting news does not stop here. I would like to use this letter to invite you to a reunion of International Studies alumni at this year’s Bradley Homecoming, October 18-20. We are using this special occasion to honor the memory of Dr. John R. Howard. The reunion will include an open house and a banquet for alumni, students, faculty and staff. I hope you will consider attending and helping us remember Dr. Howard. Check your mail for a letter detailing final plans for the reunion. You can also check for updates on our arrangements through the Institute website at http://www.bradley.edu/academic/departments/international/.
I look forward to hearing from you and hope to see you in October.
With my very best wishes,
