During 2004 in Florence, Professor Lyons taught a humanties course about the Renaissance. He visited several sites in Italy that he was able to bring back into his classroom through the power of images. He has since returned to Italy for brief cultural excursions in the last couple of years. Now, while teaching at COCC, he also serves as the statewide coordinator for the Oregon International Education Consortium, helping to organize study abroad programs in Italy, France, Mexico, and Costa Rica.
