INTERNATIONAL PARTNERSHIPS FOSTERED


JAN. 27, 2006--The University of Wisconsin-River Falls and three institutions of higher learning in India have signed memorandums of understanding, paving the way for international exchanges between faculty, staff and students.

UW-RF faculty, staff and administrators will work closely with S. Narasinga Rao , dean of Dr. Joe C. Jackson College of Graduate Studies and Research at the University of Central Oklahoma, who represented UW-RF on a recent visit to India to forge the partnerships, as well as representatives from the Indian colleges and universities.

"The beauty of a memorandum of understanding is that it opens up the dialogue for a thorough review of opportunities," said Chancellor Don Betz. "The commitment to international education is more than alive here at UW-River Falls."

The institutions include the St. Joseph College of Business Administration and the Jain Group of Institutions in Bangalore, Karnataka, and SRM University in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. MOUs are pending with several other institutions, including Sri Venkateswara University, Periyar University and Madras Christian College.
