This past June Dickinson College proudly celebrated 30 years of cooperation and friendship in collaboration with the University of Bremen. For the past 30 years Dickinson and Bremen have participated in an exchange program. This program allows Dickinson students to study for a semester or year at the University of Bremen and in return, University of Bremen students have the opportunity to study at Dickinson College. Since its inception in 1985 when Matthias Ziegfeld became the first University of Bremen exchange student to attend Dickinson College, the program has grown measurably; over the past three decades more than 350 students from both institutions have benefited from this partnership. The exchange program between Dickinson College and the University of Bremen fosters a close bond beween students and faculty from both institutions.
Dickinson College President Nancy A. Roseman, along with several members of the Carlisle community and several Dickinson alumni, visited the University of Bremen this past June to celebrate the program’s 30 year anniversary, where they were met by current members of the program. During the celebration, President Roseman adressed the assembled guests and proudly spoke about the partnership’s success, noting that “the 30 year partnership has developed into a real friendship.” Dickinson College and the University of Bremen look forward to many more years of cooperation and friendship.
