Renewed Exchange with University of Tulsa

Students of the University of Siegen will continue to have the opportunity to study at the University of Tulsa in the US state of Oklahoma. The cross-faculty exchange has now been reorganized.

Studying temporarily in the US is a dream for many young people. The University of Siegen offers students from all of its schools the opportunity to study at the University of Tulsa in Oklahoma. The exchange between the universities has existed since the 1980s. In the summer, a five-member delegation from the University of Siegen traveled to Tulsa to rebuild the partnership – successfully so: In the future, each university will have six exchange places per year for students from all disciplines. A lecturer exchange is also pursued

The delegation from Siegen consisted of scientists from four different schools: Hanna Schramm-Klein (Vice Rector for International Affairs of the University, Faculty III), Prof. Dr. Thomas Seeger (Faculty IV), Prof. Dr. Joseph Imorde (Faculty II) and Prof. Dr. Daniel Stein and Dr. Marcel Hartwig (both faculty I). At the "University of Tulsa" they were able to make contact with employees and students - among them experts and course coordinators of the departments of mechanical engineering, economics, and cultural and literature sciences. From them, the delegates from Siegen learned about study conditions, guest accommodation and student life in Tulsa.

At a final meeting with Jane Kucko, Vice Rector and Head of the Center for Global Education at the University of Tulsa, and her staff, the delegation also had the opportunity to promote the University of Siegen as an attractive exchange partner. A new study program reform in Tulsa envisages anchoring a stay at a German university firmly in the curriculum. Against this background, the University of Siegen is pleased to continue to be an important partner of the American university. New head of the Tulsa exchange on the Siegen side is Professor Dr. Daniel Stein, chair for American Culture and Country Studies.

An information day for the exchange with the University of Tulsa is planned for November at the University of Siegen. Then, interested students and lecturers can find out in detail about the possibility of a stay in Tulsa.
