Colombian Rectors Visit Triangle, learn about STEM in RTP

rectorsIn October, a delegation of rectors and deans of academics from Columbia visited our area to experience North Carolina’s world renowned research universities under the program “Innovation in Higher Education: Linking U.S. and Colombian Universities” sponsored by the U.S Embassy in Bogota. The goal was to learn about best STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education practices and how North Carolina universities were pioneering new ways to engage students. Guests visited both North Carolina State University and Duke University campuses to speak with professors, administrators, and faculty in order to develop a strong understanding of the US education system and lay the groundwork for possible future collaboration. They also toured the facilities to see how these universities were creating immersive educational environments to engage students in STEM fields.
