Seminars provided by ISU Experts

The other main university partners for this Partnership are Iowa State University (www.iastate.edu), Gori University (www.gu.edu.ge), and Thompson Rivers University (www.tru.ca). The HPE program in Gori needs to have a connection with a local university similar to the ones that Selkirk College has with Thompson Rivers University and the Iowa community and technical colleges have with public universities in their state. Partly, these connections are necessary so that there can be opportunities for transfer of credits to higher education institutions after the HPE program is complete. Increasingly, in the U.S., that can mean having a partner university run a satellite campus so the student can finish a degree without leaving the community college campus. And it also means having a partner sharing educational and subject matter expertise and knowhow.
