BGSU, UT SIGN FOREIGN LANGUAGE COURSE EXCHANGE AGREEMENT
Bowling Green State University and The University of Toledo have announced a collaboration in foreign language education that will expand opportunities for students at both universities, while saving resources by reducing duplicative academic programs.
The programs are among those identified by the Ohio Department of Higher Education in response to the Governor’s Task Force on Affordability and Efficiency’s recommendation that universities in the same region offering duplicative programs look for opportunities to collaborate.
On Nov. 15, BGSU President Mary Ellen Mazey and UT President Sharon L. Gaber led the signing of a Memorandum of Agreement supporting the foreign language course exchange.
Also signing the agreement were Drs. Rodney Rogers, BGSU provost and senior vice president; Andrew Hsu, UT executive vice president and provost; Raymond Craig, BGSU College of Arts and Sciences dean; and Charlene Gilbert, UT College of Arts and Letters dean.
“We are pleased to enter into this partnership with The University of Toledo, which will provide exceptional educational experiences for both BGSU and UT students,” Mazey said. “As one of BGSU’s core values, we welcome opportunities to collaborate. This agreement combines the strengths of both universities, resulting in efficiencies that support students’ degree completion.”
