Northeastern to establish co-op programs in Cuba
Boston Globe - 05/13/2016
As the United States and Cuba work to repair strained relations, Northeastern University will collaborate with a Cuban foundation and college to establish co-op programs in the country by 2017, school officials said.
Students will have the chance to research marine science and the environment at the nongovernmental organization called Fundación Antonio Núñez Jiménez, or study at the University of Havana School of Communications.
“It’s a significant new step that goes beyond the standard study abroad by US universities,” said José Buscaglia, a Northeastern professor who helped establish the partnerships.
