Northeast Community College held a press conference Feb. 7, to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with Aarhus Business College in Denmark.

Global Educational Opportunities, an organization created to develop more opportunities for students and faculty to improve workforce competitiveness with cultural awareness, is working for the next two years with Northeast.

“It is an opportunity to promote relationships among students, faculty, administration and board members that will mutually benefit the colleges,” said John Blaylock, Northeast Vice President of Educational Services.

The managing director of Aarhus Business College, Gitte Norgaard Nielsen, said they have already entered into partnerships in the United States, Europe, and Australia, but they would like to establish new forms of collaboration with interesting and recognized educational institutes worldwide.

“We want to prepare our students culturally for the globalized world, and thus help to develop them both as human beings and as the global force of tomorrow,” she said.

Northeast Community College President, Dr. Michael Chipps, said that he looks forward to working with the Danish college. He said he appreciates the work of Pam Saalfeld and Mary Meyer, co-leaders for the Global Educational Opportunities priority team..

“Exchanges like this one with Aarhus allow us to gain a mutual understanding of one another,” said Chipps, “We look at it as a sound and wise investment in our students, faculty, and staff, which not only strengthens Northeast as an outstanding community college, but brings the culture to reset ourselves as an integral part of the global village.”
