Work by School of Economics master’s students recognized by USAID, World Learning

Dorina Grezda and Nehat Dobratiqi, two Kosovar students supported by the Transformational Leadership Program — Scholarships and Partnerships (TLP-SP), analyzed data from a survey of Mainers to examine the factors that encourage people’s recycling and other environmental behaviors.

Professor Mario Teisl, adviser of the students, presented their work at an UNITWIN/UNESCO-sponsored conference on food waste and sustainability in Wisconsin in early September. Grezda and Dobratiqi’s contribution to the research was critical.
