The U.S. Embassy in Ukraine announced the expansion of the U.S.-Ukraine partnership in the education sector. Indiana University and Kyiv-Mohyla Academy signed a Memorandum of Understanding for a $1 million university partnership focused on government communications.
Awarded by the U.S. State Department, the grant will support the design and implementation of academic programs in government communications in Ukraine, and Indiana University will contribute an additional $360,000 to the project.
The programs will assist the further professionalization of current and future communication specialists in Ukraine, and will involve faculty and staff from The Media School, the School of Public and Environmental Affairs, and the Office of International Affairs at the IU Bloomington College of Arts and Sciences. The four-year project will result in the creation and implementation of three academic programs: a Master’s of Public Administration track, an in-service certificate for working professionals, and an undergraduate-level certificate.
The work on program details continues in Kyiv, which includes meetings with key stakeholders.
