Mongolian official working with NMSU faculty

LAS CRUCES >> As part of her fellowship with the Central Asia and Caucasus Research Training Initiative, Mongolkhatan Gunsen from the Educational Research Institute, an agency of the Ministry of Education in Mongolia, is spending the spring semester working with faculty in the early childhood education program at New Mexico State University.

The fellowship program, through the Open Society Foundation, pairs scholars in the social sciences and humanities in the South Caucasus and Central Asia with international scholars.

Candace Kaye, graduate faculty in the NMSU College of Education, has been working with Gunsen while she pursues her research in gender equity in early childhood education and works to change the model for early childhood education in Mongolia.

Kaye and Gunsen met in 2010 while Kaye was a Fulbright scholar in Mongolia.
