Diplomatic Connections

Diplomatic Connections

Virginia International University has had great diplomatic connections, as a result of its diverse student body and active community outreach. Recently, VIU officials began the latest series of meetings with ambassadors as well as cultural and educational attachés in order to foster relationships with officials in partner countries, receive advice and connections with other educational institutions abroad, and have embassy officials participate in VIU events. Ambassadors have been quite active in VIU life for its entire history; they attend VIU events as speakers, as well as to meet with President Sarac, faculty, and students. Both the Mongolian and Kazakh ambassadors visited VIU, and Dr. Sarac paid visits to the embassies of Hungary, Qatar, and Austria to meet with their ambassadors. Additionally, some of VIU faculty and staff have met with attachés at the embassies of Mexico, Peru, Liechtenstein, Croatia, and Morocco.
