 RESOLUTION TO APPROVE INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE AGREEMENTS


WHEREAS, the Board of Trustees of Winthrop University believes that it is appropriate and beneficial for the University, its students, and its faculty to participate in international exchanges; and

WHEREAS, Section 59-112-70 of the South Carolina Code of Laws authorizes the Boards of Trustees of the public universities to provide fee waivers for students participating in international Sister-State programs in the State of Rhineland-Palatinate/Rhineland Pfalz in Germany, the State of Thuringen in Germany, the State of Brandenburg in Germany, the State of Queensland in Australia, and the Province of Taiwan in Republic of China; and

WHEREAS, Winthrop University has existing agreements for student exchanges with Flensburg University in Germany, Jonkoping University in Sweden, Deakin University in Australia, Saimaa University of Applied Sciences in Finland, Kansai Gaidai University in Japan, University of Agder in Norway, Otago Polytechnic in New Zealand, and Ming Chuan University in Taiwan; and

WHEREAS, although there are separate contractual arrangements with each exchange partner, the general arrangement provides that Winthrop University students pay their required Winthrop tuition to Winthrop and their room and board at the host institution. Similarly, those students visiting Winthrop University pay the required tuition of their home institution to their home institution, but pay for room and board fees as required by Winthrop; and

WHEREAS, the members of the Board of Trustees find that these general terms and conditions are appropriate and acceptable means of furthering the educational opportunities fostered by international exchanges;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of Trustees of Winthrop University that the International Exchange agreements in place with the State of Rhineland-Palatinate/Rhineland Pfalz in Germany, the State of Thuringen in Germany, the State of Brandenburg in Germany, the State of Queensland in Australia, and the Province of Taiwan in Republic of China are hereby acknowledged and approved.

APPROVED, this the 15th day of April 2011.
