Speaker to discuss K-State-Italy connection

By Thom Jackson

The College of Architecture, Planning & Design and the international programs office introduce Serena Croce from the Centro Studi Citta’ di Orvieto in Orvieto, Italy, at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, April 2, in the UMB Theatre at the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art. The purpose of this event is to inform the university community about future collaborations between Orvieto and K-State.

Since 2005, the College of Architecture, Planning & Design or APDesign, has enjoyed a highly productive and collaborative relationship with Centro Studi Citta’ di Orvieto. More than 230 fourth-year students, accompanied and taught by APDesign faculty, have spent the spring semester studying and living in Orvieto, Italy. This presentation/discussion is to be informational for other departments across the university community about the potential of this collaboration.

Croce has been the bilingual coordinator for the Centro Studi Citta’ di Orvieto program since 2001. Her role has been to establish a learning environment, anchored in the community of Orvieto, as well as to assist students and to support the faculty teaching in the program.
