A five-member delegation from the University of Shkodra recently traveled to Colorado to sign a sign a sister-university agreement with Metro State. The agreement sets in motion talks to develop collaborations between two School of Professional Studies programs and their counterparts at the university.
The Hospitality, Tourism and Events Program as well as the Teacher Education Program might include collaborations in the areas of writing and research, faculty exchange and lecture exchange programs. The agreement comes about two years after Professor of Elementary Education Peggy Fraser traveled to Albania to speak to their students. Read the July 30, 2008 story.
During the May 3 May Day Celebration, President Stephen Jordan introduced the delegation to the crowd. Rector (president) Artan Haxhi said of his trip that it is nice to “meet with people who would become good friends, who are also specialists in their disciplines.”
The five-member team from the university included: Rector Artan Haxhi, Dean of Economics Arjeta Troshani, Dean of Education Mit'hat Hoxha, along with partnership coordinators Ylli Doci and Fabjon Ivanaj.
