WSU Signs Agreement with Thailand University

PULLMAN, Wash. – In April, 2016, Washington State University signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Khon Kaen University, a public research university in Thailand.

The partnership between the two institutions began in 2012. Most of the original agreement involves WSU providing pedagogical support to Khon Kaen’s Ph.D. program. The new document addresses areas of STEM education, diversity, curriculum and instruction, and special education.

Dr. Paul Groves-Price, Associate Dean for Diversity and International Programs, Dr. Mike Trevisan, Dean of the College of Education, and Dr. Asif Chaudhry, Vice President for International Programs, were instrumental in this collaboration.

“WSU has had a strong partnership with Khon Kaen University for nearly 15 years,” Chaudhry said. “This new MOU expands our relationship in areas where we share the same concerns, such as STEM education, diversity and multiculturalism. This agreement also opens the door for the possibility of faculty exchanges and research collaborations, as well as student exchanges and research opportunities.”
