Beginning in January he will teach for six months at the University of Valladolid in Valladolid, Spain.

Established in 1887, the university is private and coeducational with 10 schools: religious studies, philosophy, law, arts and sciences, engineering, social service, nursing, music, library and information science, and architecture and planning. Metropolitan College provides degree programs for nontraditional students.
