THIBODAUX – Administrators of Nicholls State University and Hallym University — based in Chuncheon, South Korea — signed an agreement Tuesday, Jan. 6, to facilitate and develop friendly inter-institutional relations and academic cooperation.
“This relationship with Hallym is the first of a series of partnerships between Nicholls and international institutions,” said Dr. Stephen T. Hulbert, president of Nicholls. “We anticipate further agreements with institutions in Asia, as well as institutions in South America, in the near future.”
Tuesday’s agreement stresses improved intercultural understanding and enhanced educational opportunities for students from both schools. Exchanges in all fields of common interest are promoted, including student and faculty exchange, collaborative research and the creation of educational materials.
The agreement also offers Hallym exchange students access to the Nicholls College of Business Administration’s master of business administration program – provided certain qualifications are met.
