Opportunities for faculty and student exchanges will result from a new cooperative agreement between the University of Wyoming and the Kazakh National University (KazNU).
"Kazakhstan is the world's ninth largest country and, like Wyoming, has substantial mineral wealth that is shared with its people," says Michael Brown, director and professor of graduate studies in the Department of Communication and Journalism (COJO). Brown represented UW in formalizing the agreement. "This agreement may provide opportunities for the School of Energy Resources, the College of Engineering and Applied Science, and other campus units to cooperate in relevant research."
The agreement also creates opportunities for the exchange of academic information, publications, materials and knowledge, and other mutually beneficial educational activities.
