After a competitive college-wide application process, Faruki was chosen and partnered with Jolande (Johanna) Nijkamp of Deltion College in Zwolle, Netherlands. A nurse educator by profession, Nijkamp is particularly interested in a comparative study of curriculum development, program goals, student learning outcomes, evaluation methods and assessment results, as well as the use of those results. The exchange will foster a dialogue of academic goodwill and a culture of global learning and excellence.
The delegation from the Netherlands was in the U.S. from October 12 through 26. The U.S. exchange partners will travel to the Netherlands May 17 to 31.
