	Lives locally, acts globally
	by Annie Baxter

	Summer break doesn't mean vacation for professor Ettien Koffi
at St. Cloud State University. He's a linguistics professor who hails
from the Ivory Coast, in West Africa. Koffi's a member of the Anyi
tribe. And he's spent many summers translating his tribe's oral
tradition into written language. Now he's gone a step further to
develop a literacy program back in the village where he grew up. Koffi
is visiting the Ivory Coast to see how the program's progressing.
