College faculty who received Global Partnership Project Grants during the 2017–2018 academic year were: Joyce Arditti, a professor in the Department of Human Development and Family Science, and Amy Azano, an assistant professor in the School of Education.

Arditti’s research project, “The Effects of Parental Incarceration on Danish Youth: A Multivariate Test of the Family Stress Proximal Process Model,” involves collaboration with colleagues at the Danish Center of Applied Social Science in Copenhagen, Denmark, and Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia.

As part of her proposal, “Worlds Apart? Using a ‘Beyond Boundaries’ Approach for Global Understandings Related to Common Challenges in Rural Teacher Education in Rural Appalachia and Rural Australia,” Azano will collaborate with colleagues at the University of Canberra and Queensland University of Technology in Australia.
