Ukrainian Delegation visits MCC

Internally Displaced Higher Education Professionals and Professors from Ukraine visited MCC on Thursday, April 19, 2018. Sponsored by the U.S. Congress, these colleagues came to the U.S. on an exchange program called Open World. One aspect of this program helps displaced universities from conflict areas in Ukraine gain a comprehensive overview of American colleges and universities to help further the development of their own relocated institutions. Thank you to Rochester Global Connection (rocglobal.org) for reaching out to MCC to make this visit possible, our wonderful colleagues who facilitated the discussion and navigated questions, and our students who led the tour and participated in the discussion.
