Father Holtschneider signed a memorandum of understanding with former president of the Dominican Republic, Leonel Fernández. The MOU will promote long-term cooperation and collaboration between DePaul and the Dominican Republic. Fernandez signed on behalf of FUNGLODE, an organization working to improve access to education, research and the sciences for students from the Dominican Republic. The collaboration may include DePaul professors teaching three-week classes in the Dominican Republic. Students from the Dominican Republic also may visit DePaul for short programs. The collaboration will help DePaul students gain cultural awareness and global understanding. Read more about DePaul's collaboration with FUNGLODE.
