Daemen and Mongolian Government Finalize Agreement

In a formal ceremony held Dec. 9 at Daemen House, the presidential residence, college officials signed a memorandum of agreement with a high-level delegation of governmental officials from Mongolia that will lead to exchanges of faculty and students between Mongolia and the U.S.

“Daemen College has a longstanding relationship with the Mongolian government and its people, and we are delighted that this agreement will enable many students and faculty from Mongolia to come to our college as well as our faculty to visit Mongolia,” said Daemen President Gary A. Olson.

Dr. Michael Brogan, vice president for academic affairs and dean of the college, presided over the signing ceremony. “This agreement will lead to a new level of collaboration with our Mongolian partners,” said Brogan. “We expect many students from Mongolia to join the student already studying here to form a cohort of Mongolian students as the first of many generations of those from their country who will study at Daemen.”

In attendance at the ceremony were Colonel Pagva Bira, head of special forces training for the Mongolia National Police; Jambaa Solongo, chairman of the Mongolian Institute of Cinematography; and Carmen B. Cabell, consul of Mongolia, Foreign Missions Head of Post.

“Through this wonderful relationship with Daemen College, we are building a vital educational bridge between the U.S. and Mongolia,” said Bira.
