K-State, Argentina University Start Institutional Cooperation

K-State, Argentina University Start Institutional Cooperation

Collaboration allows for possibility of various K-State departments and UNLa programs.

Two Kansas State University professors recently traveled to Argentina to kick off an international institutional cooperation between K-State and the University of Lanus, or UNLa, in Buenos Aires.

The institutional agreement was developed last summer after Gabriela Diaz de Sabates, instructor of women's studies, and Marcelo Sabates, associate professor and head of the philosophy department, presented the idea to authorities at the University of Lanus. Their trip was supported by a grant from K-State's office of international programs.

To begin the partnership, Diaz de Sabates and Sabates lectured at UNLa in November on the concept and current mission of a land-grant university.

The collaboration allows for the possibility of research collaboration between various K-State departments and different UNLa programs, such as the university's Center for Human Rights, Center for Research in Ethics and Center for the Study of Resiliency. A permanent study abroad option every summer in Buenos Aires, including visits to rural communities in northern Argentina, is also one of the main components of the partnership.
