The International University Sports Federation Forum (FISU) is a conference held every two years at different locations around the world. The 2012 conference is in Chinese Taipei from March 26-31.
Former Division II Pittsburgh-Johnstown women’s basketball student-athlete Andrea Dalton and Division III junior Loras College baseball student-athlete Travis Misner will represent the United States at this year’s forum. The pair, who were selected based on academic excellence, leadership qualities and community service as well as athletics involvement, will meet with other athletes from around the globe to discuss this year’s theme “University Sport: a Platform for Sustainable Development.”
Neither Misner nor Dalton have traveled internationally and had to apply for their first passports in advance of the trip. They areoth a bit nervous about the language barrier, but say it will be part of the experience.
Dalton and Misner will post daily blogs on NCAA.org, detailing their journey and sharing their experiences.
