Professor Ali Thobhani in EthiopiaMSU Denver’s Office of International Studies is continuing to work to strengthen a partnership with Aksum University in Ethiopia.

Professor Ali Thobhani is the executive director of the MSU Denver Office of International Studies. He says during the summer of 2012, a group of 15 MSU Denver students went to Aksum University for a two-month study abroad course under a grant from the U.S. State Department. Currently, any MSU Denver student who is interested in studying there can go. It would require at least a semester of planning and working with the Office of International Studies.

Thobhani says the office is considering a Fulbright-Hays grant project in collaboration with Aksum University for the summer of 2019.
