Montana Tech to Host International Advisers



Montana Tech of The University of Montana in collaboration with The University of Montana and Carroll College will host four EducationUSA international advisers in early June.

The advisers, Margaret Anyigbo of Nigeria, Aleksandra Augustyniak of Poland, Tetiana Kotko of Ukraine and Sudarrshan Saha of India, will meet with various academic departments, faculty, and international students while touring the campus of Montana Tech on Wednesday, June 9, 2010. They will also tour around Butte during their visit.

During their weeklong visit to Montana, the advisers will tour Montana Tech, The University of Montana, Carroll College, Salish Kootenai College in Pablo and UM’s Flathead Lake Biological Station.

Out of 20 applications, the proposal submitted by the University of Montana, Montana Tech, and Carroll College was one of eight chosen to host the EducationUSA advisers.

EducationUSA is a global network of advising centers supported by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Each year, EducationUSA collaborates with the College Board to sponsor adviser visits to colleges and universities around the nation following the Association of International Educators annual conference in late May.
