Prof Receives AASCU Fellowship

APRIL 14, 2006--UW-RF English Marshall Toman will travel this summer to a conference that will focus on integrating aspects of Japanese culture in the classroom as a recipient of a prestigious fellowship through the American Association of State Colleges and Universities.

The AASCU Sasakawa Fellowship is offered each year to faculty members in the United States who are not experts in Japanese culture, but who teach courses that could incorporate Japanese culture into their course.
AASCU sponsors a limited number of faculty members to gather each year in San Diego, Calif., to study Japanese culture.

Toman says he plans to use his new knowledge in the UW-RF courses, World Cinema and Freshman English, which has often had portions of the course devoted to international issues. As an advisor to many students from Japan, Toman also wants to be more informed about their culture as well.
