Dr. Charles Green, education director of the AID Mission in the Dominican Republic, coordinated the students' program there along with New College student Steve Nohlgren, who is on academic leave for a year in the Dominican Republic and is teaching at the university. Dr. Green has arranged for the five students to stay in private homes in Santo Domingo and to join in the Thanksgiving holiday among the American colony there. On Monday, Nohlgren will take the five to Santiago where they have been officially invited to be guests of the university by its vice rector, Padre Agripino Nunez, who visited New College during the past summer. At the university, several of the students are planning to do some intensive work on their own Spanish, two are doing special research projects for their own Independent Study Periods and all of them are helping in the teaching of English under a program directed by Dr. Paul Stoakes of AID. John Esak plans to do his research on the educational system at the university as seen through the eyes of its students. Susan Sleater, who spent the past summer in Lima, Peru, will study the role of women in the national society and Joan Schnabel also is interested in studying the family structure in specific neighborhood areas. more -
