State Department, university leaders to hold workshop at UNT

Masood Raja

Approximately 60, representatives from the U.S. Department of State, faculty members and administrators from U.S. universities, and administrators and faculty members from universities in Pakistan will attend a University Partnerships Conference Nov. 12-15 that will be partly held at UNT’s Gateway Center.

The workshop participants will learn about U.S. universities’ partnerships with universities in Pakistan. One such partnership is between UNT and the National University of Modern Languages, Islamabad. In 2012, UNT received a $1 million grant from the U.S. State Department’s Public Diplomacy Programs for Afghanistan and Pakistan to fund the initiatives, which include UNT faculty members traveling to Islamabad to assist with curriculum restructuring in NUML’s graduate Department of English, and NUML faculty members and graduate students visiting UNT for curriculum development training and research with UNT faculty members. The UNT-NUML partnership is directed by Masood Ashraf Raja, above, UNT associate professor of English, with the program’s office located in the UNT Department of English.

The State Department is currently funding 19 partnerships between U.S. universities and universities in Pakistan. UNT’s program was selected from them to host the University Partnerships Conference.
