Bridging Nations: Cuba, Alabama and IYA

For nearly a decade, the College for Arts and Sciences of the University of Alabama has built relationships with Cuban institutions (particularly the University of Havana). Fostered by Dean Robert Olin, this “Cuba Initiative” has involved groups of faculty traveling to Cuba, visiting scholars making the opposite trip, and eventually a semester-long study term for students. During the International Year of Astronomy, this exchange includes display of images from the IYA From Earth the the Universe universities.
