Friday, June 25, 2010


The Institute of International Education (IIE), a nonprofit organization affiliated with higher
education in India for more than 50 years, selected St. Cloud State University as one of 10 U.S. institutions to participate in a pilot academic partnership program. Ann Radwan, associate vice president for international studies, said that over the next few months campus representatives will participate in a number of training activities focused on preparing them to meet with potential Indian partner campuses in the fall of 2010.

In their official announcement IIE noted St. Cloud State’s “commitment to international education” and “demonstrated support from both administration and faculty, commitment to increasing internationalization on your campus and stalwart desire to foster a partnership with an Indian institution.”

Selected from a pool of more than 70 other institutions, St. Cloud State joins California State University - San Bernardino; College of William and Mary; Florida Atlantic University; Oakland Community College; Ohio Wesleyan University; Spelman College; The University of Tulsa; University of South Carolina and Winston Salem State University.
