For Immediate Release

The University of Hawai`i at Hilo has entered into formal agreements of cooperation and understanding with five universities located in Africa,Asia, Australia and the mainland United States. The signings took place during recent ceremonies on campus attended by Chancellor Rose Tseng and university leaders, taking part in an international roundtable discussion on women in higher education, hosted by Dr. Tseng.

The signed agreements extend UH Hilo’s global reach by establishing partnerships with the universities, and become the foundation for future educational opportunities.

“UH Hilo has over fifty active general and student exchange agreements with international institutions,” Dr. Tseng said. “These agreements pave the way for the creation of new student exchange opportunities, study abroad sites and the hosting of faculty researchers from participating institutions.”

The University’s new partners include Communication University of China (China); Marian University (Wisconsin); Busitema University (Uganda); Josai International University (Japan); and James Cook University (Australia).

UH Hilo is considered a highly internationalized university. Fall 2008 figures reveal the University had an international student enrollment of three hundred twenty-two students, representing 8.5 percent of the total campus enrollment.
