New Partnership with Universidad de Cienfuegos
We are excited to announce that UCF Global has received an Innovation Fund grant award between the University of Central Florida and University of Cienfuegos, Cuba. This award was received on Wednesday May 31, 2017, at this year’s NAFSA conference.
In an effort to increase internationalization across campus, UCF Global established a relationship with the University of Cienfuegos, Cuba. Delegates were invited to come to campus and meet with our Nicholson School of Communication – from here a partnership was born.
Starting in May of 2018, a new program will be available to all communication students. The program will take place on the Universidad de Cienfuego’s campus for two weeks, where students will study music, culture and art, practice their Spanish and live in a multi-cultural environment. The objective of the course will be to produce a 30 minute show based on individual findings abroad.
We are grateful to have received this grant from NAFSA as it builds upon our mission to transform lives by providing high impact, international experiences across the UCF and global community with a commitment to excellence in partnership, innovation and services.
