Northeastern secures academic partnerships for co-​​ops, research in Cuba

North­eastern Uni­ver­sity has signed agree­ments with insti­tu­tions in Cuba offi­cially estab­lishing part­ner­ships that will lead to a range of new aca­d­emic opportunities—from global co-ops to research—for North­eastern stu­dents and faculty.

Uni­ver­sity leaders and fac­ulty from North­eastern met on campus Tuesday with a Cuban del­e­ga­tion from the Fun­dación Antonio Núñez Jiménez and the Uni­ver­sity of Havana to sign the agree­ments, which come on the heels of a North­eastern delegation’s visit to Cuba in March to explore aca­d­emic and research part­ner­ships there. The recent moves to begin nor­mal­izing of rela­tions between the United States and Cuba paved the way for North­eastern to pursue these opportunities.
