Marshall will be playing host to more than 60 members of its international recruitment team from INTO University Partnerships, hailing from more than 20 countries, beginning with a signing ceremony that will kick off the agreement. The signing will take place Thursday, Nov. 15 at 9 a.m in Marshall University Foundation Hall, home of the Erickson Alumni Center. Members of the university community are welcome to attend.
“For many, this will be their first trip to West Virginia and we want them to receive a warm West Virginia and Marshall welcome,” said Matt Turner, Marshall’s chief of staff. “They will spend the entire day on Thursday on our Huntington campus, learning about our academic programs, touring our facilities and even meeting with Marco and shopping in the bookstore. They want to learn as much about Marshall in the short time they are here, so they can share the great things about MU when they return home.”
The agreement between Marshall University and INTO is expected to build the institution’s global profile and increase international student enrollment at the university. They have been developing the partnership for the past two years to build on Marshall’s growing international reputation and to bring greater awareness of global cultures to West Virginia’s college students and communities.
