SUNY Expands Ties in Jordan
SUNY/CID NEWS STORIES 2006
As part of an effort to expand SUNY's relationships with universities and other institutions in the Arab world, a SUNY delegation visited the Kingdom of Jordan from May 14 to 19, 2006. Working in coordination with SUNY/CID's Legislative Strengthening Program in Amman, Ambassador Robert Gosende, SUNY Associate Vice Chancellor for International Programs, and SUNY/CID Director James Ketterer met with representatives from Yarmouk University, the University of Jordan, Mu'ta University, the King's Academy, United Nations University, and various officials from the Government of Jordan and the US Embassy in Amman. The delegation's mission was to explore ways in which to increase the level of student and faculty exchange between Jordanian institutions and SUNY campuses.
