Laura Behling, English professor at Gustavus Adolphus College, was one of three professors in the United States appointed a Washington Internship Institute (WII) Faculty Fellow for the spring 2006 semester by the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U). She will spend the semester in Washington D.C., at the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE).

The WII Faculty Fellow program enables faculty to broaden their professional, disciplinary, and personal horizons, reinvigorating their own work as scholars, teachers, and educational leaders.

Co-sponsor AAC&U supports this organization because of their interest in improving the quality, vitality, and public standing of undergraduate liberal arts education. During her semester with AACTE, Behling hopes to embrace this principle by gaining knowledge about the connection between politics and humanity.
