Carvalho Earns UNL Parental Recognition

Opening the minds and hearts of students to foreign travel is all in a day's work for Marilena Carvalho, the College of Engineering's international programs coordinator-but the results can create memorable life experiences. Carvalho received a UNL Parents' Association certificate for having made a significant contribution to the lives of UNL students. She was nominated by Carissa Gengenbach, a senior CHME-ENG major, who was inspired by Carvalho to participate in the France and Brazil programs following her sophomore and junior years. Gengenbach wrote that Carvalho is "always pushing students to expand their horizons, and she is always willing to help them find a way to go on one of the trips, often going to great lengths to do so."
