DUWC's Richardson Named to Rockefeller Foundation Residency

Wetland Center Director Curtis Richardson will serve a prestigious writing residency at the Bellagio Center on Italy's Lake Como

DUWC Director Curtis Richardson is the recipient of a 2018 Bellagio Center Academic Writing Residency.

The Rockefeller Foundation's Bellagio Center Residency Program is for university and think tank-based academics, researchers, professors, artists, policymakers, and scientists demonstrating decades of significant professional contributions to their fields. The program brings together these practitioners to foster cross-cultural and interdisciplinary dialogue to shape thinking and catalyze action around the Foundation's strategic goals.

The Rockefeller Foundation strives to promote the well-being of humanity, particularly through issues that have a direct impact on the lives of poor and vulnerable populations around the world. These issues include but are not limited to health, economic opportunity, urban resilience, as well as food and agriculture.

Dr. Richardson will begin his time at the Bellagio Center facilities on the shore of Italy's Lake Como later this year.
