Featherstone, Professor of Educational Administration at Michigan State University from 1960 – 1985.
Dr. Taylor feels it is imperative that educational leaders have the desire and opportunity to build bridges of international and intercultural understanding. It is her hope that this research fund will provide the pathway to further develop global knowledge and teamwork.
