FRIENDS: Kick-off Meeting on Erasmus+ Programme (Key Action 2) Capacity Building for Higher Education (CBHE) in, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

On March 5th-8th, 2019, the President of Dewey International University (DIU), Dr. Raymond A. Zepp, and Vice Director for Academic and International Affairs, Mr. Meas Raksmey, attended the FRIENDS: Kick-off Meeting on Erasmus+ Programme (Key Action 2) Capacity Building for Higher Education (CBHE) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Among 16 universities, DIU is one of the two universities in Cambodia that participate in this three-year project. Other universities are from Europe and Asia. FRIENDS stands for Furthering International Relations Capacities and Intercultural Engagement to Nurture Campus Diversity and to Support Internationalisation at Home. The main concept of FRIENDS Project is the purposeful integration of international and intercultural dimensions into the formal and informal curriculum for all students within domestic learning environments. In other words, FRIENDS Project’s overall objective is to strengthen involved universities’ internationalisation capabilities and to develop students’ global competence through the purposeful integration of intercultural dimensions into the universities’ formal and informal curriculum. Since the theme of the conference was Internationalization, DIU made considerable progress in developing ties to many universities in Asia and Europe. These ties will improve DIU’s international image. While in Malaysia, we visited the ultra-modern Asia-Pacific University of Technology and Innovation (APU), where we made contacts to set up partnership programs in Information Technology. The FRIENDS workshop itself was held at Berjaya University College of Hospitality, where we have established contacts for joint cooperation in Tourism and Hospitality Management.
