Thursday, November 01, 2018
PIQUA — Edison State Community College President Dr. Doreen Larson and board of trustees chairman Tom Milligan recently traveled to Barranquilla, Colombia, in South America to visit the Reformed University (Corporacion Universitaria Reformada or CUR) to further discuss partnership opportunities.
It was during this visit that President Larson and Rector Helis Barraza signed an Agreement for Spanish Language Instruction and Related Cultural and Faculty Exchange.
“Our partnership with CUR will use the technological expertise of the CUR Language Institute to connect these students, both from the USA and Colombia,” said President Larson. “The students will not only share academic content but, I feel, they will be able to motivate and encourage each other to achieve their educational goals and understand the worldwide benefits of higher education.”
This signed agreement will provide online Spanish language instruction from faculty at CUR to students enrolled in Edison State Spanish courses. The agreement also supports opportunities for students to visit CUR for advanced Spanish language immersion studies and cultural awareness experiences.
