NH university signs agreement with Turkey campus


NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — Rivier University in Nashua, N.H., has signed an agreement with a university in Turkey that will allow students to attend classes on each other's campuses.

The agreement signed this month will let Rivier students travel to Atilim University in Ankara, Turkey, for up to a full academic year, while Atilim students travel to New Hampshire.

Mark Meehan, Rivier's associate vice president for global engagement, says the partnership will connect faculty and students to what he called "a cutting-edge institution in one of the world's most strategic countries."

The study-abroad program will start in the fall with a joint course focused on global issues that will be taught simultaneously in Nashua and Ankara. Students will use a video system to discuss their shared reading assignments.
