Monterey Institute and American University in Cairo Sign MOU Promoting Exchanges, Collaboration
March 22, 2010
President Sunder Ramaswamy signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the American University in Cairo yesterday designed to expand ties and exchanges between the two schools. The agreement calls for the two institutions to cultivate academic and educational cooperation, support collaborative research, professional internships and technical cooperation, and promote sustainable partnerships that may include exchanges of graduate students, faculty, academic materials, and publications.
“We look forward to working closely with AUC on a variety of initiatives in the future,” said MIIS president Sunder Ramaswamy upon signing the three-year agreement in Cairo.
“This partnership ensures that MIIS and AUC students will be provided with the opportunity to collaborate and contribute across cultural, political, and geographic boundaries,” added AUC President David Arnold.
The agreement between MIIS and AUC was initiated by Ambassador Nabil Fahmy, the founding dean of AUC’s School of Global Affairs and Public Policy, and chair of the Middle East Nonproliferation Project at the Monterey Institute’s James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies.
