Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Welcome to winter - our favorite season in Canadian Studies! Vince and I wish to thank Gary and Consuelo Corbett for their tremendous generosity and vision to enhance cross-border expereiences for undergraduates. This quarter we launched the Corbett Canada-U.S. Fellowships Program with our colleagues at University of British Columbia. Thank you Gary and Consuelo!
We are also pleased to report that President Young signed an approval letter to Deans Lisa Graumlich and Robert Stacey for the new UW interdisciplinary minor in Arctic Studies - a joint programbetween College of the Environment and College of Arts and Sciences. We extend a huge thank you to the Arctic Minor Steering Committee and all those whose commitment enabled the creation of this program. The minor forms the academic component for UW's Future of Ice. - Nadine &Vince
