Faculty sought for Michigan Road Scholars Tour

The Michigan Road Scholars is accepting applications from instructional and research track faculty to take part in its 2009 tour.

The annual educational tour exposes participants to the state's economy, government and politics, culture, educational systems, health and social issues, history, and geography.

Designed to increase mutual knowledge and understanding between U-M and the state's community members, the five-day tour introduces participants to the places the majority of our students call home, encourages University service to the public, and suggests ways faculty can help address state and local issues.

In addition, the experience is expected to develop beneficial ties and promote interdisciplinary discussion among the touring faculty.

A faculty advisory committee will select 30 faculty members to participate in the tour scheduled May 4-8.

All meals, accommodations (private rooms for each participant), and transportation will be provided. A tour bus used for transportation will be equipped with a restroom, video monitors, snacks and a small library of materials regarding the State of Michigan.

Stops on the tour will include special presentations by and interaction with a variety of community representatives.
