President LaForge had the pleasure of visiting with the Indianola Lion’s Club today to discuss his September trip to Cuba with 17 other American university presidents.
Delta State was the only Mississippi university to participate in this effort to strengthen ties with Cuba as we visited the island nation to participate in relationship-building discussions with higher education leaders from Cuba.
The trip was made possible by the annual Presidential Mission led by the American Association of State Colleges and Universities. Each year, AASCU organizes a Presidential Mission to a country or region where member presidents and chancellors have opportunities to explore potential linkages with institutions of higher education.
