Danubius University and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, an international partnership for education, culture and academic research

Danubius University and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore have signed a partnership agreement to explore academic and cultural exchanges between the two institutions.

Prof. univ. Dr. William B. Harvey, Rector of  Danubius University, visited the UMES campus for the signing ceremony of the agreement with UMES President Dr. Heidi M. Anderson and representatives of the university's management.

Professor Harvey said that "the partnership with UMES brings to the fore the growing concern of Danubius University to expand its educational and cultural collaborations around the world for the benefit of Danubian students and faculty."

"One of the main goals of UMES is to have graduates who are culturally and internationally aware, so our partnership with Danubius University is a step in that direction. When you talk about learning about different cultures, not in your own country, but in other countries, this broadens your horizons. Such an opportunity also trains tomorrow's leaders from both universities." said Dr. Heidi M. Anderson, President of UMES.

The agreement signed between the two higher education institutions outlines an appropriate framework for establishing exchange programs for students and graduates, as well as for faculty and for collaboration in the field of scientific research, which is a priority for Danubius University.

Dr. Moses Kairo, Dean of the School of Agriculture and Natural Sciences at UMES, represented the American University in mid-September at the TDST 2021 International Conference (https://www.univ-danubius.ro/en/news/tdst-conference) , where he had several meetings with representatives of Danubius University.

The possibilities that these two universities will explore include joint bachelor's and master's programs, ways to collaborate to identify and develop best practices in teaching, evaluation and institutional management, and sharing technological expertise (https://www.wmdt.com/2021/12/umes-partnering-with-university-in-romania-to-explore-exchange-programs/).

The University of Maryland Eastern Shore opened its doors on September 13, 1886, and today offers 38 undergraduate, 14 master's, and eight doctoral programs ((https://wwwcp.umes.edu/pr/from-the-banks-of-the-manokin-to-the-danube/?fbclid=IwAR20S7zmaGV-Z_eBfV-UekXKMmiovs45TM5LdTmTsx3Kbe8GcDFBwk3cc1Y).
