American and Šiauliai Academics Determined to Strengthen Collaborations
During International Week in May, an official delegation from the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) visited Šiauliai University to participate in the “Studies, Science and Culture without Borders” conference, to acknowledge and celebrate the 15-year anniversary of the ‘sister university’ collaboration agreement between both universities – together with their Šiauliai colleagues, and to discuss future paths of collaboration.
The US Embassy cultural attaché in Lithuania – Martha C. Adams – believes that the partnership between Šiauliai University and the University of Nebraska at Omaha stands out as the best example of collaboration between U.S. and Lithuanian institutions of higher learning.
This was also noted by the leadership of the University of Nebraska at Omaha, who are very pleased that Šiauliai University is prepared to expand collaborations not only in culture,but in others fields of science and study.
