The management of Gregory University, Uturu has concluded plans for the participation of delegates from the institution in exchange programmes in two universities in the United States of America this summer.
This cheering news was announced by the Registrar, Dr. Austin Orisakwe, during a chat with journalists in his office recently. According to Orisakwe, two separate teams comprising students and officials of the university are expected to participate in the summer exchange programmes in Kennesaw State University, Georgia and Langston University, Oklahoma simultaneously.
The registrar added that “the exercise is in furtherance of our annual exchange programme policy which officially commenced last summer with visits to Langston University and The Opportunity Hub in Atlanta with resounding results.
“Having just perfected our partnership agreement with Kennesaw State University, we shall therefore be sending another set of students and some faculty members to benefit from their rich academic profile that covers a wide range of academic disciplines.”
He commended the pioneering efforts of the Chancellor, Dr. Gregory Ibe, “whose inspiring leadership, due diligence and relentless commitment to globally-acceptable education standards resulted in the establishment of linkage relationships with many notable institutions in the US.”
He therefore enjoined students of the university, who desire to expand the scope of their intellectual acquisition to apply for the programme, stressing that their grades from the exchange programme will be credited to them back home in Nigeria.
A team of 15 students and officials had successfully participated in last summer’s exchange programme in the US.
