In partnership with the U.S. Embassy in Quito and the Center for Interamerican Studies Foundation (CEDEI), The Forum is very pleased to be offering specialized training to Ecuadorian universities to assist them to expand their capacity to host U.S. students on their campuses. Training in the Standards of Good Practice will take place at CEDEI Foundation’s main office in Cuenca on November 17 and 18. The program is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Embassy in Quito and supports the U.S. government’s 100,000 Strong in the Americas initiative.
Jill Dietrich, Assistant Cultural Affairs Officer at the U.S. Embassy, commented: “Ecuador has an immense untapped capacity to expand its reach as a choice destination for U.S. students, and to send students to study in the U.S. The Embassy has been working with universities in Ecuador since 2013 to increase their ability to send and receive students through strategic internationalization initiatives. We are pleased that The Forum will be offering this training as the next step in capacity building for Ecuadorian institutions.”
