Programs in International Educational Resources (PIER) link up with Yale University Library
The first six fellows in the new Community Faculty Fellowships Program met up with librarians and PIER staff at Luce Hall in April. In December 2003, Programs in International Educational Resources (PIER), the outreach arm of the Yale Center for International and Area Studies (YCIAS), in collaboration with the Yale University Library, launched this internationally focused initiative. The fellowships aim to provide guided access to Yale’s international education resources for a competitively selected group of faculty from Connecticut’s community colleges. With the goal of enabling them to conduct research and create new courses or add international content to courses currently taught, six fellowship recipients were officially appointed in January. Twelve subsequent fellowships will be offered on an annual basis, at the start of each calendar year. Among the many benefits, successful candidates will receive library privileges, an individually tailored program of lectures and activities and have the opportunity to participate in the PIER Summer Institutes and Overseas Field Study Programs.
