American University of Kuwait extends partnership with the College

Jun 20, 2018   |   The Dartmouth

"For at least the next five years, Dartmouth students will still have the opportunity to travel to and work at the American University of Kuwait," writes The Dartmouth. "In a ceremony hosted by College President Phil Hanlon on Apr. 23, representatives from both Dartmouth and AUK signed a memorandum of understanding that extends the 15-year partnership between the two institutions for another five years.

"The Dartmouth-AUK program debuted in 2003 and has since allowed both institutions to 'enhance the liberal arts learning experience' on their respective campuses by offering collaborative opportunities to their students, faculty and staff, according to the program’s website. These opportunities include academic and administrative advisory projects, a summer term-long fellowship at Dartmouth for AUK faculty members and a cross-cultural internship program for students at both schools. Students at AUK can also participate in the Dual-Degree Engineering Program, where they study both at AUK and the Thayer School of Engineering."
