Building Long-term International Educational Partnerships:
Unexpected Benefits, Pseudo-Randomness and Limitations from Working with Vietnam Forestry University

Lee MacDonald, Professor Emeritus and Senior Research Scientist
The collaboration between Vietnam Forestry University (VFU) and CSU—particularly the

Warner College of Natural Resources—dates back to 1999 with the first visit by CSU faculty and the first graduate students from VFU. This led to a series of VFU graduate students at CSU, Dr. MacDonald spending a semester teaching in Vietnam, and a long-term curriculum development program that has stimulated a large number of faculty exchanges and an expanding relationship between CSU and VFU that is partly planned and partly pseudo- random. This seminar will discuss the lessons learned, unexpected limitations, and surprising benefits that may only result from longer-term interactions.

ALL ARE WELCOME! Lunch will be served. Please RSVP by February 16 to Mary.Dolce@colostate.edu.
