For the clinical trials management program, a partnership has been formed with an organization in India that presents the course online.

Nicholas Mayard-Paul, First Secretary of the Embassy of Haiti in Washington, said "We realize that with the nature of the world we live in today, we cannot afford to be insular [...] We cannot afford to be isolated. We need to develop these opportunities for the benefit of our students, our region and our nation."

"We have long been welcoming to students from around the world," said Douglas Doren, UD interim vice provost for graduate and professional education and dean of the Graduate College. “About a quarter of our graduate students are international students, and we have about 5,000 international students altogether in the undergraduate and graduate programs. We have a couple of close personal connections with Haiti through some of our undergraduates."

Shaun Sutherell, director of professional programs for UD PCS, acknowledged the progress accomplished during the meeting but emphasized more work needs to be done to establish new joint initiatives.
