UMW Hosts Education Representatives

The University of Mary Washington hosted a delegation of high-level ministry and higher education representatives from eight countries on Feb. 23.

The representatives, who came to the U.S. from Iraq, Tunisia, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Vietnam, and the Philippines, visited as part of the EducationUSA Leadership Institute. The EducationUSA Leadership Institute was sponsored by the State Department and the Institute for International Education.

The delegation stayed in the U.S. from Feb. 16 to 24.

The goal of EducationUSA is to bring participants from select countries and world regions to the U.S. to increase their understanding of U.S. higher education, develop the tools necessary to build capacity within their own systems, and engage with the U.S. higher education in effective, sustained ways.
