April 4 welcome kicks off Thai grad student visit

By Dustin VandeHoef, College of Education intern

PULLMAN, Wash. – Before presenting at a national conference, doctoral students from Thailand will practice before Washington State University graduate students and faculty this week.

Their visit is part of a four-year-old partnership between the WSU College of Education and faculty at Thailand’s Khon Kaen University (KKU). The agreement recently was renewed by Dean Mike Trevisan, who said future collaborations could be in the areas of STEM education, diversity, curriculum and special education, as well as potential faculty and student exchanges.

A free, public welcome for the international students – including food and two of their presentations – will be 6-8 p.m. Monday, April 4, in the Brelsford Visitor Center in downtown Pullman.

“The KKU students are presenting at the American Educational Research Association conference following their visit, so this is a great opportunity for them to receive feedback before,” said Paula Groves-Price, associate dean for diversity and international programs in the College of Education.

Many of the visiting students are learning to speak English, so the presentations will provide a chance to improve their grasp of the language.

The KKU students will offer WSU faculty a taste of Thailand when they cook a thank-you dinner on Tuesday, April 5. They will also spend time touring the campus and surrounding areas.
