Posted on: March 05, 2012
College of the Mainland’s North American Mobility Program (NAMP) is hosting foreign dignitaries from Canada and Mexico, March 4-6, on campus.
NAMP works specifically with COM’s business, sociology, Process Technology, (PTEC) and safety and environmental programs. NAMP is a $190,000 four-year grant program issued by the U.S. Department of Education.
“I think it’s a great honor for College of the Mainland to receive this type of grant for international exchange,” said Dr. Dotti Jones, Director of Leadership, Organizational Development and Training. “It’s even more special that we’re the lead institution because this is the first time we’ve done this.”
COM is the NAMP’s lead institution. The other participating colleges and universities are St. Lawrence College of Kingston, Ontario, Canada; College Communautaire de Noveau-Brunswick, Campbelton, New Brunswick, Canada; Instituto Tecnologico Superior De Villa La Venta, Mexico; and Daytona State College in Daytona Beach, Fla.
The students in the program are studying Green Building Initiatives.
NAMP promotes a student-centered approach to education and training in several academic and professional programs that complement bilateral and trilateral exchange programs among Canada, Mexico and the United States.
