SAO Staff in South Africa
August 19, 2014
Director Susan Scott and Assistant Director Blair McElroy of the Study Abroad Office were invited by Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) to attend their “Family Week,” a biannual meeting of all exchange partners in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. SAO shares many of the same partner universities as NMMU for exchanges, so the department benefitted from seeing peers from its partner universities and sharing ideas about international education and its growth with this group. Susan and Blair also visited NMMU, its campus, its surroundings, and many of its facilities while meeting with the staff and faculty of NMMU in order to strengthen our exchange. It was a beneficial and exciting trip for them both—it was their first to the continent of Africa.
