Exchange Program leads to U.S.-Polish University Agreement
15 March 2012
On March 12, Cultural Attaché Andrew Paul represented the Embassy at the inauguration of a new university partnership between the Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences (MSASS) at Case Western Reserve University (Ohio) and the Institute of Sociology at Adam Mickiewiecz University (UAM) in Poznan. The partnership agreement will allow students from either program to take courses in the other. This new university relationship originated from the initial contact made by Bogna Frąszczak, a participant in the Polish American Freedom Foundation’s leaders Voluntary Visitor program in 2008, with the support of the U.S. Embassy. American professors and students from MSASS attended the event as a part of a week-long initial visit to Poznan marking the beginning of the new partnership.
Later in the day, Paul led an informational program for Polish high school students interested in studying in the United States. At the meeting, hosted by Ms. Frąszczak at the Advisory Vocation Center for Youth where she is the director, Paul was joined by American students from Case Western Reserve University.
