“IAUPR-SG Student Exchange Project”
The Innovation Fund grant will enable Universidad Interamericana de Puerto Rico, San Germán and Corporación Universitaria Minuto de Dios to enhance and strengthen the academic exchange already underway between the partnering institutions. A major activity of their joint project will be student engagement in research experiences. The Universidad Interamericana, San Germán will provide Colombian students with a unique setting for learning about the culture, democracy, social affairs, history, as well as Latin America and U.S. relations in the second half of the twentieth century. Another component of the program is the establishment of a faculty exchange to develop resources and improve study abroad processes, such as recruitment, legal immigration compliance, travel logistics, admissions, and other student exchange services.
