iciHaiti - Education : Opportunities for Partnership with the University of Delaware
At the invitation of the Commission for African and Caribbean Affairs of Delaware and the Haitian Community of Delaware, the Ambassador of Haiti to Washington, Hervé H. Denis at the head of a Haitian delegation, went to the end of October , at the University of Delaware to explore opportunities and potential partnerships with several units of the University.

The Haitian delegation discussed educational opportunities in various fields, such as technology, health care, entrepreneurship, business and energy. Much of the conversation has focused on online programming, which does not require students to travel outside of Haiti.

Online University programs include, in addition to advanced social media marketing for businesses, Bootcamp coding, Advanced Telehealth Coordinator Certificate, Clinical Trial Management Certificate, Risk Management. health care and test preparation for ACT, SAT, GMAT, GRE, LSAT and Praxis. 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.
