Dr. Marcelo De Vincenzi, Dean of Computer Technology at the Universidad Abierta Interamericana, and Dr. Patricia Zinno, Director of UAI’s Vaneduc Educational Consortium in Buenos Aries, Argentina visited the University of Central Arkansas this week as a part of UCA International Engagement’s Culture and Language Immersion Camp that is being held on the UCA campus this month. The camp, which hosts twenty-six UAI students from three different countries, is a three-week cultural summer camp for college students from around the world to learn about American culture while improving their English skill.
During their visit, they met with President Tom Courtway, Executive Vice President and Provost Steve Runge and the Council of Deans to discuss future cooperation including exchanges between UCA and UAI and special educational programming including UCA’s annual Leaders of the World Program.
“We are delighted that Dr. De Vincenzi and Dr. Zinno have taken the time to visit our university and look forward to ongoing programing with UAI,” said UCA Associate Vice President and Associate Provost, Jane Ann Williams.
In January, 2015, UCA and UAI will host a Culture and English Immersion Program for Professionals, bringing educators, legislators, and business leaders from around the world together. You can read more about the January program here.
