Due to her interest in the 17 United Nations SDGs (sustainability and development goals), out of a competitive application process and rigorous point system, Marisol Diaz, Chair of the Art & Design Department, has joined Lisa Wittner as a fellow Fulbright awardee!  Marisol won a four-week Fulbright-Hays Seminar Abroad award to Thailand for this upcoming summer.  Marisol will be one of 16 selected educators coming from secondary schools around the US and its territories, from subjects that range from history, math, science, psychology,  English, principalships, and art (she is the only Art & Design participant).

Marisol, who was profiled in the last issue of D-E Today, will be  addressing Transformational Thailand: Toward a Sustainable and Inclusive Economy and Society, with a focus on the  Bio-Circular Green Economy which centers on environmental awareness and biodiversity. Marisol’s project will be on Thai-inspired Eco-Poetic/ Social Dialectic Art curriculum. She provided this additional context for us:

“Upon completion of the program, participants will have a deeper understanding of Thailand in its current transformational period. Through their curriculum projects, educators will be able to share their insights with their home education institutions and local communities to bring them a deeper understanding of social, economic, and environmental development in Thailand and Southeast Asia.”
