Global Partnerships Introduction
Global Partnership Table
This direct exchange program affords students from Mannheim and Salem State to spend a semester at each institution while paying home tuition and earning a full semester of credits that transfer back to their degrees.
This is a new direct exchange partnership that resulted from a visiting scholar from Chieti-Pescara fostering a memorandum of understanding. Two Salem State students will be going to Italy under this program in spring 2020, and Salem State will host two students from Chieti-Pescara.
Erasmus+ is the EU's program to support education, training, youth, and sport in Europe. Its budget of €14.7 billion will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, and gain experience abroad. Erasmus+ also aims to promote the sustainable development of its partners in the field of higher education, and Salem State is honored to be chosen by the KUL as an Erasmus + partner. This partnership allows for faculty and staff mobility as well as student exchange. We will be sending Salem State faculty to teach for a week in Lublin for the third time in spring 2020, and we will host our first student from the KUL, also in spring 2020.
Partners of the Americas connects local organizations and universities in the Americas to broader funding opportunities and empowers citizens to become agents of change. They seek to develop lasting solutions to our hemisphere’s toughest challenges. Salem State has received an Innovation Fund grant in a partnership with Universidad de Guanajuato, Mexico, which will prepare future teachers to be better equipped to be culturally responsive educators. The Innovation Fund fuels strategic university partnerships to increase student exchange and training programs between the Americas. Nine Salem State education students and their professor, Francesca Pomerantz, PhD, will travel to Guanajuato during spring break in 2020. In turn, eight students from Guanajuato and their professor will visit Salem in April 2020.
