On February 19th, the Institute of International Education awarded a Centennial Medal to 2018 Blossom Hill Fellow Keith David Watenpaugh, professor and director of Human Rights Studies at UC Davis. The presentation took place at the institute’s Centennial Summit in New York City.
The institute cited Watenpaugh for his “friendship, guidance and dedication” in support of its mission, and made specific reference to his Article 26 Backpack project that uses face-to-face counseling and cloud-based technology to help refugees and other displaced people document and share their educational accomplishments. Launched in June 2018, Article 26 Backpack already has about 1,000 users.
