As a Fulbright Scholar I returned to the Philippines last August 2015 for five months to conduct research and post-occupancy evaluations on the first, three community projects built by Foundation University Estudio Damgo architecture students.  Using the research, I organized an advisory committee to institutionalize the program to ensure its success.  Read about my experiences as a Fulbright Scholar in Dumaguete City's Metropost feature article "Sustaining Communities Through Design-Build Education".
