(MENAFN) Officials at the Indiana State University said that it will lend its moral and intellectual support overseas as the possibilities of establishing an International University in Morocco are explored, the Indian Tribstar reported.
University officials signed an agreement with the Group Chaabi YNNA Holding to conduct an in-depth feasibility study to produce an implementation plan for the Morocco university.
The International University in Morocco will be a non-profit, private university, based on American-style campuses, located between Rabat and Casablanca, according to the general memorandum of understanding between ISU and the Chaabi Group.
The study phase of the exploration is expected to last 6 months, at which time each party will assign a working group to analyze and develop a proposal that will explain the nature of future collaborations, including a business plan and agreement on the role of each party in the development of the new campus.
ISU will provide technical assistance and administrative leadership in areas such as information technology, library and media services, student housing and records systems while the Chaabi Group will provide financial support.
