Metropolitan Universities, International Partnerships


Should metropolitan universities compete for technical assistance grants? What kind of commitment is involved? Can the ethnic population of a metropolitan community be an asset in work abroad? How can a metropolitan university develop a productive partnership with an eastern European university?
