The College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics hosted a delegation of higher education leaders from the National University of Uzbekistan and Urgench State University June 8-16 to continue discussions about establishing partnerships with the universities. CSU and CSUF administration and faculty members from across disciplines participated in the exchange. Zair Ibragimov, assistant professor of mathematics, helped organize the visit.
Discussions included establishing educational partnerships; delivering CSUF’s online programs, as well as developing an MBA program, for Uzbekistan students; organizing joint scientific conferences; offering faculty exchange programs, among others. Last summer, CSUF administrators and faculty members visited Uzbekistan, in Central Asia, and met with senior education officials and academic leaders to cultivate ties with the country's universities.
