2003 Summer Nonproliferation Institute Opportunity

A 7-day faculty development Summer Nonproliferation Institute will be held at the University of North Carolina at Asheville in the lovely mountains of western North Carolina from June 27 - July 3, 2003. The purpose of this institute is to enable undergraduate college and university faculty members from any discipline to teach a course devoted to, or with substantial emphasis on nonproliferation, lessening the current international threat to the planet from the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction: nuclear, chemical and biological. The technical background gained from this seminar will be very valuable for all faculty interested in nonproliferation issues.
The Ploughshares Fund is generously providing support for participants selected to attend including room and board at UNCA and up to $250 toward travel expenses. Applicants need to demonstrate an active interest in teaching nonproliferation and the institutional possibility of such a course, but background in the field of nonproliferation is not required.
Please visit the institute website: www.unca.edu/nonproliferation
for application information, a schedule of the institute, and biographies of the presenters. Support is limited. The application deadline is May 15, 2003. Well-qualified applicants will be accepted prior to that date, so early applicants will have a better chance of acceptance.
Please circulate this announcement as widely as possible to the faculty at your college or university who might be interested in this opportunity and to your colleagues at other institutions also. If you have an appropriate list serve, could you send out a notice to its audience? Thank you for your help in getting the word out!
