A quick reminder that Rajasthan Vidyapeeth University Chancellor Bhawani Shanker Garg and Slippery Rock University Interim President Robert Smith will sign a new faculty/student exchange agreement at 5 p.m. Friday [May 23] providing an opportunity for photos/videotape. Both administrators will offer comments on the expanded opportunities that will be offered students and faculty at both universities as part of the agreement.

The ceremony is set for the University Club of North Hall.

Rajasthan University is located in Udaipur, India, some 90-minutes from New Delhi.  (A detailed news release was sent previously.) The first exchange under the new agreement could take place spring semester (January 2004).

SRU’s signature international initiatives program currently has more than two dozen similar exchange agreements allowing students to undertake a semester or entire year of study at an international university. Faculty are permitted to teach at participating exchange universities and are brought to the SRU campus, particularly in the modern languages area. The agreements involve universities in China, Korea, Japan, England, Germany, France, Ireland, Scotland, Austria, Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Mexico, Costa Rica, Australia and other countries.

Dr. Donald Kerchis is director of SRU’s Office of International Initiatives.


Those interested in covering the ceremony are asked to call 724-738-2199.
