University Officials from Argentina Visit NSU

A group of 25 high-ranking officials representing public and private universities in Argentina recently visited the NSU campus at the invitation of Chancellor Ray Ferrero, Jr., J.D. 

The May 28 campus visit was in conjunction with a two day Academic Summit organized by the Consul General of Argentina in Miami, that brought together higher education professionals from colleges and universities in Argentina, Florida, and Puerto Rico to explore academic partnerships among the institutions.

NSU President George L. Hanbury II, Ph.D., representing NSU and the other Florida colleges and universities in attendance, joined Argentine Consul General Miguel Talento and other distinguished guests at the opening session of the Academic Summit on May 26 to welcome the participants and speak about NSU’s expanding international presence.

During the campus visit, the participants were given an overview of NSU’s schools, programs and international initiatives by Anthony J. DeNapoli, Ed.D., Dean of International Affairs, as well as a campus tour that included sessions about library support for international students and NSU’s electronic instructional delivery technology, prior to a luncheon sponsored by the Office of the Chancellor that included NSU’s executive administrators and deans. 

José Landi, Coordinator of Institutional Relations for the Argentine Ministry of Education, addressed the group and commended Chancellor Ferrero for NSU’s innovative vision and commitment to international program partnerships.

NSU’s College of Osteopathic Medicine is currently working with the medical school of the Barceló Institute of the Health Sciences in La Rioja, Argentina on a cooperative reciprocal program that provides medical rotation experiences for medical students. NSU’s Fischler School of Education and Human Services, in cooperation with the respected professional development institute ABS International in Buenos Aires, will be co-hosting the ABS International Conference for teachers of English to speakers of other languages (known as TESOL) on NSU’s main campus in August, 2011.
