She said they are honored and enthusiastic to be collaborating with ISU in promoting educational opportunities between the two institutions.
“We are thrilled to be able to serve our international community with you,” Brunner said
On the other hand, ISU President Dr. Ricmar Aquino has assured of the university’s resources while focusing on boosting its internationalization efforts.
Aquino said the partnership will be an opportune time for both ISU and DC to showcase what they can do to forge alliances and dedicate resources to internationalization.
“I am confident that with our collaborative efforts and commitments, we will achieve stronger rapport and connection,” Aquino said.
