Up Next: The Middle East

Keuka College is a major educational player in the Pacific Rim.

With nearly 3,000 Chinese students pursuing degrees at four partner universities in China, Keuka boasts the largest enrollment of any American college or university operating in that country. Some 475 Vietnamese students are doing likewise at two universities in Vietnam, and the College has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Universiti Utara Malaysia with an eye toward making a Keuka degree available to students in that country.

Now comes word that the College is looking to extend its educational influence to the Middle East. Keuka President Dr. Jorge L. Díaz-Herrera and Madame Hiam Sakr, president of the American University of Science and Technology (AUST) in Beirut, Lebanon, recently signed a MOU that could lead to collaboration between the two schools

In this interview, Dr. Gary Smith, vice president for professional studies and international programs, explains that the College is looking to start a program at AUST as early as this fall. He also discusses other international aspirations as well as the success of the Accelerated Studies for Adults Program (ASAP).

Sellers, Hahn and Jarvis Bring Institute to the Airwaves

Jim Hahn (Penfield High School) and Maureen Jarvis (Skaneateles High School) didn’t think that doing a radio interview would be part of their responsibilities at the Rochester Area Colleges–Center for Excellence in Math and Science summer institute at Keuka College.

But when asked to join Tim Sellers for an appearance on Keuka College Today, a monthly program aired on WFLR (Dundee), they obliged.

And they did a terrific job.

Hahn, Jarvis and Sellers were interviewed by Executive Director of Communications Doug Lippincott Thursday morning.

Cuban People Tell their Story in Documentary

In April and May of 2003, John Locke and his wife, Debbie, visited Cuba.

They brought back 30 hours of video, “including interviews with the former mayor of Havana and the general secretary of labor, as well as ordinary Cubans,” said John, director of instructional design in the Center for Professional Studies.

That video footage formed the basis for Strait Talk: Politics, Propaganda and Perceptions Across the Florida Straits, a documentary produced by John Locke.

Locke recently screened the video at Keuka College and was a guest on Keuka College Today, a monthly program hosted by Executive Director of Communications Doug Lippincott and aired on WFLR in Dundee.
