Transforming Rural Nepal through Community Based Model of Higher Education.
Mid-Western University supports meaningful formal relationships with foreign universities and institutions. When such partnerships work optimally, they bring a wide range of educational benefits, including enabling faculty and students from both institutions to study and conduct research abroad.
The WACAP (Writing across the Curriculum) is an example of an extensive relationship.The WACAP Project, designed to train faculty to integrate “writing across the curriculum” and better prepare students to write/communicate effectively in the professions, was launched in September 2015. Led by Dr. Shyam Sharma, a scholar of Writing Studies who teaches at the State University of New York in the United States, this project will train 9 Midwestern trainers who will in turn train 20-30 other instructors in the spring season of 2016. This project will conclude with a Writing Conference in Surkhet and Kathmandu in the summer of 2016.
