IOWA CITY (AP) — Administrators from a top Russian university have been visiting the University of Iowa this week to learn about best practices at an American major research university.
The delegation from the National University of Science and Technology in Moscow arrived Sunday and will leave today. A Russian official said the group wanted to learn about everything from university budgeting practices to student housing. The group visited the National Advanced Driving Simulator, attended a panel discussion on STEM education with Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds and visited experts in numerous different campus departments.
