Visit of a delegation from Gannon University

On October 26-27, 2022. The Faculty of Economics at UMCS hosted a delegation from partner Gannon University (Gannon University, Erie, PA) from the United States. Ms. Dean, Dr. Karinna Vernaza (College of Engineering and Business) and Director Meagan M. Gania (Learning Abroad and International Academic Programs) met with representatives of Maria Curie-Sklodowska University and Faculty of Economics. During the talks, issues of developing mutual cooperation between Gannon University and Maria Curie-Sklodowska University were raised.
Thanks to the commitment of Dr. Bruce A. Kibler (GU) and Dr. Paweł Pasierbiak, an inter-institutional agreement was signed in 2013. Since then, scientific and didactic cooperation has been developing.

In the didactic area, it is worth noting that since 2016 the two universities have been participating in the Erasmus+ KA107 program, which enables the exchange of students and staff between institutions. Accordingly, the Faculty of Economics regularly hosts lecturers and students from Gannon University, and employees of the Faculty of Economics lecture at Gannon University.

In the academic sphere, joint research is carried out, based on which co-authored publications are produced. In addition, due to the fact that Lublin and Erie, PA are partner cities, scientists from GU and UMCS are engaged in promoting cooperation in this area as well (joint articles and lectures).
We hope that the visit of Ms. Karinna Vernaza, Dean, and Ms. Meagan M. Gania, Director, to the Faculty of Economics will contribute to the intensification of cooperation between our institutions in the didactic, scientific and other areas.
