July 2012 REPORT

Dear Friends & Colleagues,
Dan and I are pleased to report on the tremendous growth in Canadian studies and research at the University of Washington this summer. This includes publications from faculty and graduate students, study-in-Canada experiences by our FLAS and Killam Fellows, and professional development trainings for K-12 and community college faculty. A special thanks to the Government of Québec and Fulbright Canada for their tremendous support enabling us to bring top Canadian scholars in innovation technologies and Arctic business and security to the U.W. in 2012-13. Merci beaucoup! – Nadine
