Dr. Ardrey, head of WKU’s Department of Political Science, will spend a year at the University of Limpopo in South Africa, while Dr. Chan, Leon Page Chair of Finance and University Distinguished Professor, will spend the fall 2017 semester in China.

In consultation with University of Limpopo’s Division of Social Sciences, Dr. Ardrey’s Fulbright year (July 2017 to June 2018) will include teaching modules that focus on Women of the African Diaspora, curriculum review/development of the Limpopo Division of Social Sciences, and research on the political behavior of women of the African diaspora through in-depth one-on-one interviews.

Dr. Chan will be teaching international finance this fall at a university in China; selection of the school is pending.
