This blog describes an ongoing partnership between faculty in East Asian studies at the University of Kansas (KU) and a newly opened school for Tibetans in Qinghai China founded by a Tibetan charity. Faculty from KU will assist the school in developing curriculum in the arts such as thangka painting as vocational training in order to help diversify the local economy. Five students from the school will also be studying at KU in 2011. This site will document the visits of KU faculty to the school in 2009 and 2010 as well as the learning experience of the Tibetan students at KU.
KU faculty visited the school from July 15 to August 12, 2009 and from July 2 to August 12, 2010, and five affliates from the school studied at the University of Kansas during spring semester 2011.
• We were pleased to have five Tibetan participants from Golok studying at the University of Kansas from January to May, 2011. They have safely returned to Golok but remain in our memories and we hope to see them all again soon.
