MV Transportation Partnership
The MV Transportation Partnership is a collaboration between the City of Lawrence, KU on Wheels, MV Transportation, and KU Experiential Learning to provide funding and opportunities for students to engage in applied learning projects.
Congratulations to the 2018 MV Transportation Instructor Grant Recipients!
The University of Kansas, the City of Lawrence, and MV Transportation are pleased to announce the three KU recipients of the 2018 MV Transportation Instructor Grant. Angela Hendershot, School of Journalism, and Dr. Robert Hagen and Dr. Ali Brox, Environmental Studies Program, will receive a grant as well as additional funding to support course-based experiential learning activities.
Since 2014, MV Transportation has supported student learning through scholarships for transportation research projects. In an effort to provide more students with experiential learning, this year’s funding will benefit courses that integrate an applied learning project related to public transportation during the Spring 2018 semester.
