East Carolina University will host 11 education leaders from Ural State University in Russia Sept. 23.
The Russian guests and two interpreters will learn about ECU’s Global Understanding Program and discuss how East Carolina has become the state’s leader in distance education. The visitors will also learn about possible international linkages such as the Global Academic Initiatives at ECU.
East Carolina began its Global Academic Initiatives several years ago with a global understanding course that offers an opportunity to study abroad with students from other countries without ever leaving ECU’s campus.
The global initiatives, which also includes global lectures and research opportunities, has grown to more than 30 universities and 23 countries around the globe, including Lomonosov Moscow State, Maritime State University and Tomsk State Pedagogical University in Russia.
For more information, contact Dr. Austin Bunch, ECU Senior Associate Provost at (252) 328-0607.
