Ethiopian Agriculture Deans visiting Texas Tech as part of International Leadership Program

Tibor Nagy
The leaders from various Ethiopia's rising agricultural universities will study U.S. university practices and build collaborative bonds with American counterparts.

The Texas Tech University College of Agricultural Sciences & Natural Resources (CASNR) has earned a reputation worldwide as a leader in agriculture, whether it's food safety, meat sciences, improving the production of various crops or educating future agricultural experts and communicators.

The reputation will grow next week as the college and the Office of International Affairs host seven scholars from various universities in Ethiopia during their visit to the United States as part of the U.S. Department of State's International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP). The scholars will visit Texas Tech Sunday through Tuesday (July 16-18).

“Ethiopia is one of America's key relationships, given its stabilizing role in East Africa, its support in our global fight against terrorism and its rapid economic growth,” said Ambassador Tibor Nagy, vice provost for International Affairs. “The relationship will only become more important in the future, so the U.S. government is keen to support establishing relationships between Ethiopia's national universities and ideal U.S. partners. Agriculture is one of Ethiopia's national development priorities, and CASNR's programs are a perfect complement to Ethiopia's pursuits.”
