“This agreement will provide a wide range of new opportunities for our students and faculty,” Interim Associate Dean for Graduate and International Programs, Don Williams said. “The key benefit for students is that it provides a fairly low-cost alternative for studying abroad at an English language university in Germany. In addition, it will help us attract German students to study at Kent State in both Florence and Kent.”
