History of Cartography Project celebrated by NEH

For its 50th anniversary, the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is highlighting select projects they support that "have enriched and shaped American lives." We are pleased to announce that our History of Cartography Project is one of them! Thanks to the many alumni and friends whose private gifts release NEH matching funds for the project.

Naughton receives Education Innovation Grant

Prof. Lisa Naughton has received a UW–Madison Education Innovation Grant to create an international experience for students, specifically for Geog/Envir St 339: Environmental Conservation, through online short videos and real-time discussions with Ugandan farmers. The project aims to create a sense of connection to the global community among UW-Madison students who may have the opportunity to travel abroad, particularly to Africa. The short videos will be housed on a public website and have the potential to function as OERs for other UW–Madison courses and beyond.
