University of Maryland Eastern Shore to Cooperate with Danubius University in Romania

University of Maryland Eastern Shore, a historically Black educational institution in Princess Anne has signed an agreement to explore academic and cultural exchanges with Danubius University in eastern Romania. Danubius University is located in Galati, a port city of 286,000 on the Danube River. The university enrolls about 3,000 students and offers seven bachelor’s degrees – including “commerce, tourism and services” and “accounting and information technology management” – as well as master’s programs in such areas as criminal sciences, business management in commerce and tourism, and security management in international relations.

The agreement calls for the establishment of exchange programs for undergraduates and graduate students as well as faculty, and collaborations on research. Among the other possibilities UMES and Danubius will explore are joint degree programs, ways to collaborate on best practices in teaching, assessment, and institutional management, and sharing technology expertise.

Hedi M. Anderson, president of the Univerity of Maryland Eastern Shore, said that “one of our core goals is to produce graduates who are culturally and internationally aware, so our partnership with Danubius is one more step in that direction.”
