Exposure to different cultures is one of the most meaningful
forces in the promotion of international
understanding and peace.
We wish for our students to discover that the world
becomes a smaller, friendlier place when they learn that all people regardless
of nationality, desire the same basic things: a safe, comfortable environment
that allows for a rich and satisfying life.
The opportunity to meet peers from other countries and experience
their cultures, hopefully, will plant the seeds for friendships and enhance
their intercultural understanding and competence.
We feel that the exchange will provide both our students and yours
the opportunity to experience cultures other than their own, and will give them
a broader view of the world and a deeper understanding of themselves while
deepening the ties between the two countries in an atmosphere of mutual respect
