Washington State University’s John D. Rizzo and the University at Albany’s John W. Ritchie, who is also a professor of political science at WSU, are working on a book about the university’s history of its students studying abroad.
The story of the university began in the 1890s, when the first UW students were brought from the countryside to the city to attend school in a newly formed community.
As the students grew older, the UW became more interested in research, and in the ability of the students to make their mark in the world.
In 1924, the school introduced a program called The International Fellowship, which invited students to live and work in the US and abroad, earning them grants for their study abroad and for their research.
The program grew and became a major part of the UW’s culture, and a large part of its history.
For many years, the program was run by the UWs chief economist, William J. Farrar, a native of Milwaukee who had previously served as president of the University System of Wisconsin.
But in 1961, the economics department moved to a new building in Seattle, and William Farrad retired, with the UW moving to its current location.
The move away from the UW was partly driven by the high cost of living in Seattle.
The UW had begun to struggle financially with a large student population that it couldn’t attract, and Farras departure had caused an exodus of students.
As the program moved to Seattle, the new president, Mary Ann Mazzolini, tried to find an alternate plan for the university, one that would take advantage of the increased research that was happening in the city and the surrounding suburbs.
Mazzetti wanted the UW to be a center for research, to create an environment that would attract the best students from around the country.
In a letter to her colleagues in 1971, she described a program she had proposed, one which would allow students to travel and live in the Seattle area for the next two years.
She suggested the UW would have a summer program in which students would travel to Europe and participate in projects in Europe.
She said the UW should focus on research, but also provide students opportunities for socializing and volunteering.
In early 1970, the first International Fellowships were established, allowing students to apply to live at a UW campus, to work at the UW, or to take part in other kinds of research.
Students who were accepted could be given grants of up to $10,000 to spend on their studies.
The first International Fellowship program was founded in 1973, and since then, the number of International Fellors has grown to over 200.
In the last five years, it has provided more than $400 million in grants to more than 100,000 students worldwide.
“I’ve been involved in this because I think it’s important,” Ritchie told Polygon.
“I think it is a very good way to try to engage people in the UW.”
While the University’s reputation for academic excellence is well known, Ritchie said the program is also about helping the UW attract students and attracting them to the university.
“If you can’t make that connection between the research and the teaching that’s important, then you don’t want to go there,” he said.
In the book, Rizzio and Ritchie hope to tell the story of that relationship and what they have seen in the students.
“We hope to find out if there’s a relationship that has not been talked about, and how did they become that way, and what are some of the things that they might be doing that we didn’t know,” Rizziano said.
“We hope that will help inform and inform our thinking about how to do that in the future.”
Rizzio said that the students would have been part of a larger group, that the program could have been a more inclusive one, and that the international students would likely have had the opportunity to stay in Seattle and study.
“The whole idea is that you don of course come back and tell people that you did this and that, and there’s going to be this other thing that you’ve done, and you’ve got to tell them you’ve been in Seattle for two years,” Rizio said.
“What I would hope is that students can say, ‘Well, I’m not going to go to this program and not tell anyone,'” Rizzano said.
Ritchie said that if he was writing a book, he would want to look at the people that were involved in the program and try to understand what made them who they were.
“It would be very interesting to learn about the students who actually went and did that, because I would love to know how they got from the village to the big city,” he added.
For Rizzuto, the story behind the International Fellowship has shaped his understanding of what the UW is today
