KALAMAZOO—Western Michigan University is one of 14 United States colleges and universities recently selected to participate in the Institute of International Education 2013 Brazil initiative of IIE’s International Academic Partnership Program.
Representatives from each institution will participate in a yearlong series of training activities to help implement and sustain partnerships with institutions in Brazil, culminating with a study tour to Brazil in spring 2013 to meet with potential partner campuses. WMU’s efforts will be coordinated by Dr. Michelle Metro-Roland, director of faculty and global program development at the Haenicke Institute for Global Education, and a campuswide steering committee drawn from faculty and administration.
