Trinity Leeds All-Saints University Enters Into Exchange Agreement with Siena Heights
Siena Heights University has officially entered into an exchange agreement with England’s Leeds Trinity All-Saints University. This agreement will enable students from LTASU and Siena Heights to take classes at the other’s institution at reduced rates. Min Li, a representative from Leeds Trinity, visited the Siena Heights campus in early June to help formalize the partnership.
“We are pleased to partner with Leeds Trinity and look forward to the many opportunities this agreement provides,” said SHU President Sister Peg Albert, OP, PhD. “This continues Siena Heights’ goal of promoting peace through increased global awareness. These types of agreements will help us continue to build new cultural and educational bridges around the world.”
“Siena Heights encourages its students to engage in international study and travel in order to increase their exposure to different cultures and languages,” said SHU Director of International Studies Dr. Jennifer Hanson. “The agreement will foster and develop a cooperative relationship between the two universities by means of the exchange of teaching staff/scholars, undergraduate and graduate students and post-graduate students.”
Siena Heights has similar agreements with Yanshan University in China, and Dar Es Salaam University in Tanzania. SHU also is in the process of negotiating agreements with institutions in several countries in South America.
Hanson said the SHU Office of International Studies also provides several international study tours every year. Past tours have included England, France, Italy, Dubai, Venezuela, the Dominican Republic and Ireland. For the 2008-09 academic year, Siena Heights had 65 students representing 30 countries studying on its Adrian campus.
