STAUNTON, Va.--Three women who attended the NGO (Non-Governmental, or

led a panel discussion on the current status of women March 19 at Mary
Baldwin College. Panel participants Kay Goodman, member of the
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) travel/study seminar; Kume Smith, an
undergraduate at Virginia Commonwealth University; and Megan Park, also of
VCU, spoke about meeting activists from all over the world, their
perceptions of the problems facing women around the globe, the
recommendations of the conference and the hospitality of the People's
Republic of China.
PORTLAND, Ore.--Lewis & Clark College has received a grant of $300,100 from
the Ford Foundation to support collaboration with the University of Oregon
in Asian Studies. The collaborative program calls for teaching exchanges,
collaborative research projects, coordination of library acquisitions,
jointly sponsored symposia, joint production of a research journal and a
variety of other activities -- such as seminars, guest lectures,
conferences and working retreats -- to encourage formal and informal
faculty dialogue. Faculty at both institutions expect to share research
contacts and ties with educational institutions in Asia such as Waseda,
Kyoto, Keio, and Hokusei Gakuen universities in Japan, Yonsei in Korea and
Tunghai University in Taiwan.
