UT MARTIN PARTNERS WITH ITALIAN ORGANIZATIONS – University of Tennessee at Martin Chancellor Keith Carver signed a partnership agreement with the Società Dante Alighieri di Siena and the University of Siena during a dinner event May 2 at The Lindell in downtown Martin. While several UT Martin students have visited the Società Dante Alighieri di Siena in Siena, Italy, in previous years, this agreement opens the doors for other universities to join UT Martin in sending students to participate in semester-long study-abroad experiences. All trips are open to all students. Pictured after the signing are (l-r) Dr. Joe DiPietro, former president of the UT System; Carver; Dr. Joe Ostenson, associate professor of psychology and coordinator of the Italian study-abroad program; and Luca Bonomi, president of the Società Dante Alighieri di Siena. Bonomi signed the agreement on behalf of both Italian institutions. For more information, contact Ostenson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 731-881-7542.
