Clayton State University President Dr. Thomas Hynes and Dean of the College of Health at Clayton State Dr. Lisa Eichelberger will be traveling next week to Seoul and Daejeon, South Korea to visit Daejeon Health Sciences University.
Hynes and Eichelberger will be leaving on Mother’s Day for a eight-day trip that will include meeting with 16 individuals (15 students, one faculty member) who will be coming to Clayton State for classes this July, and to sign an official MOU further solidifying Clayton State’s growing agreement with Daejeon, which may in the future include additional educational possibilities and partnerships in other areas besides nursing. Eichelberger will also be giving a lecture, and both Clayton State administrators will be meeting with many different groups and touring medical facilities. Hynes and Eichelberger will also be tweeting from South Korea during their trip. They can be followed at @tim2333 (Hynes) and @DocLisaEich (Eichelberger). The hashtag is #CSUKorea.
Their visit is in conjunction with the initial MOU between Clayton State and Daejeon Health Sciences University, originally signed in March 2013.
The 16 representatives from Daejeon Health Sciences University will be coming to Clayton State in July to study medical terminology and English, visit local hospitals and to take in several cultural opportunities. They will be staying in Clayton State’s Laker Hall residence hall.
