Congratulations to Dan Nolan for being selected as a recipient of the Award for Global Engagement, in part due to his collaboration with others on this site.
Here are a few highlights of Dan’s work recognized with this award:
“Dr. Dan Nolan has the remarkable ability to build bridges across people and cultures. […] He develops and oversees Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) programs at the University of Minnesota, Duluth, which helps faculty develop international learning experiences that connect students with peers around the world. Partnering countries in this initiative include Ghana, Finland, Uganda, Morocco, Canada, Germany, England, South Africa, Spain, Czech Republic, China, Russia, Mexico, and New Zealand. […] Nolan also works to integrate sustainability initiatives into language courses. He serves as a key liaison in a formal international partnership between Germany and Minnesota — the Climate Smart Municipalities (CSM) — that advances climate and energy transition efforts in six German and six Minnesota cities. […] He also co-organized discussions that ultimately led to the creation of the website Environment and Engagement in German Studies, hosted at Carleton College, which is now a vital hub for teaching, research, and civic engagement pedagogies. He has been invited to present to the European Aurora Alliance, focused on advancing innovation for society’s largest challenges.”
