Indiana State enters partnership with University of Havana
Indiana State University has entered into an educational exchange agreement with the University of Havana in Cuba. The partnership will allow for student study abroad programs, instruction and research.
Beginning in fall 2023, faculty and students from the two universities will engage in collaborative research and expand respective course curricula.
“Indiana State University is pleased to include University of Havana on the list of global universities with which we partner for educational exchanges,” said Christopher Olsen, Indiana State University Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. “We look forward to providing our students and faculty with expanded opportunities to gain a greater worldview on public policy, political science, social and natural sciences, humanities, and healthcare through study abroad, classroom instruction and research collaboration with University of Havana faculty.”
A number of Indiana State leaders and faculty traveled to Cuba two weeks ago to meet with university leadership in Havana, including School of Nursing Executive Director Jill Moore.
“The College of Health and Human Services is thrilled to have the opportunity to conduct cross-cultural research with the University of Havana in the areas of nursing, social work, and human development and family sciences,” said Moore. “What’s even more exciting about this partnership is that it allows students to travel abroad and receive a life-changing educational experience with a different culture, healthcare, and political systems.”
Indiana State University joins about 80 other U.S. universities that collaboration agreements with the University of Havana.
