Accomplishment: With very little advanced notice, late last spring Kelly effortlessly undertook the implementation of a new exchange program, Brazil Science Without Borders, a cooperative venture of IIE in NY and the Brazilian Ministry of Education (CAPES). The students come for the academic year. Kellys role involved working closely with the Study Abroad staff to determine acceptance to Rochester, approving their schedules for the year and ensuring their successful integration into the Hajim community of the five students currently here.
Benefit to the Hajim School: Recruiting overseas exchange students is new for us, but these are top students who are a good fit, especially for graduate school.
