Telemark University College officials visit MSU
Minot State University hosted a very successful visit by officers from Telemark University College in Skien, Norway, Oct. 9-10. The purpose of the visit, held in conjunction with Høstfest, was to work out details regarding the agreement signed by the two institutions in June. Representing Telemark were Knut Duesund, vice rector and vice chair of the TUC Executive Board, Anne Glenna, chair of the Department of Teacher Education and former executive board member, and Trine Ellefson, director of international relations and executive board member. Duesund and Glenna also are members of Telemark’s International Committee which deals with international relations and programs, student exchanges and related matters. Along with a general meeting where both institutions made presentations, the three Telemark officials met with the deans of the three MSU colleges, the Graduate School and the Center for Extended Learning to discuss program specifics. A larger group tackled and made progress on details to facilitate faculty and student exchanges.
