SUNY Delegation Visits Tunisia


From May 8 to 14, 2006, a delegation from SUNY visited Tunisia as part of a US State Department University Linkages program. SUNY/CID Director James Ketterer joined Dr. Lora Lunt and Dr. Edwin Portugal of SUNY Potsdam in meetings with SUNY's partner institution under the three-year grant, l'Institut Superieur de Gestion (ISG) in Tunis. The grant began in 2003 and supported seven Tunisian professors and graduate students in a year-long stay on the Potsdam campus, where they carried out research in business and economics, taught undergraduate courses, participated in seminars focused on teaching skills, and gave public outreach lectures about the Arab world. The grant also supported an exchange of US and Tunisian researchers and the purchase of technology designed to enable Tunisian and American students to participate in common seminars and research projects. While in Tunis, the SUNY delegation worked on research presentations with ISG students, met with project participants, and participated in a day-long final symposium.
