MSPP is very excited to announce that we are actively exploring possible collaborations in a variety of areas with Saint Louis University (SLU). On March 4, 2015, our President Terri met with Dr David Borgmeyer, Director of International Studies and Aaron Lockee a Project Manager in Administrative Public Health. As a result of this meeting MSPP has been listed on the university website as a possible organization that their international studies students can intern with. We are looking forward to where this collaboration might take us!
On March 25th Terri took a trip to Macomb IL. to meet once again with faculty and staff at Western Illinois University (WIU). She met with the Center for International Study.
