NC State Prague Welcomes Visit from Global Symposium Participants

The NC State European Center in Prague welcomed Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Warwick Arden and a delegation of NC State faculty and staff members to the Czech Republic last week for a visit to the newly expanded facility.

Representatives from the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, College of Textiles, College of Engineering, the Office of Global Engagement and Provost Arden visited the center after attending the University Global Partnership Network annual meeting at the University of Surrey.

The group spent time touring the center and had the opportunity to meet current students and faculty.

In addition to learning about the continued expansion of the center, the delegation also met with NC State’s three key partner universities: Charles University, Czech University of Life Sciences, and Czech Technical University.

With these partners, NC State faculty and staff discussed opportunities for collaboration in academic coursework, faculty exchanges, and research.

NC State Prague officially transitioned to the Office of Global Engagement in the summer of 2017 and is the most common destination for NC State study abroad students.

The center offers traditional year-round study abroad programs in addition to alternative programs that have contributed to an increase in enrollment and a diversification of disciplines, including several upcoming programs for this summer.
