Summer Session With Faculty From Around The World
By Ted Rockwell, marketing director, Division of Continuing Education and Professional Studies

Faculty from around the world will be on the University of Colorado at Boulder campus this summer for the Faculty-in-Residence Summer Term, or FIRST program.

The FIRST program was started in 2002 as a summer program to bring world-class faculty to the Boulder campus to teach and forge relationships with their respective departments. FIRST allows departments to enhance their summer session offerings, bring in faculty that share research interests, or augment the research agenda of the department. Students benefit from new perspectives and the opportunity to study with scholars from around the world.

Summer 2006 FIRST faculty include A.S.G. Edwards from the University of Glamorgan, Wales. He will teach a graduate class on how to read and study the manuscripts and printed books of the medieval and Renaissance eras. Evan Thompson from the University of Toronto is offering a course in Mind, Life and Phenomenology. James Schiffman, a senior editor at CNN International and a CU-Boulder graduate, is returning for his second year as a FIRST scholar. His class examines how Western journalists can effectively report the news in China.

"FIRST is just one of many different learning opportunities offered during the summer," says Carol Mehls, summer session's director. "A new program for Summer 2006 is a certificate program in the field of sports marketing and management, offered by the Leeds School of Business and open to all students regardless of major. The certificate will have three specialized courses, the first two of which are scheduled this summer."

The 2006 FIRST program will include classes offered by the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Engineering and Applied Science, the School of Journalism and Mass Communication and the School of Law. For more information on summer session visit or call (303) 492-5148.
