UT Arlington meets with Jordanian royalty, enters into agreements

The agreements will help the Arab kingdom focus on improving healthcare for its people, UTA President Vistasp Karbhari says.

UT Arlington officials entered into initial agreements with four Jordanian institutions this month to collaborate on research, student success, and sustainability and environmental concerns.

The agreements are between the Jordanian Nursing Council, Hashemite University, the Jordanian University of Science and Technology and the Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority in Jordan.

UT Arlington President Vistasp Karbhari said the agreements mark a beneficial partnership for all institutions and will help the Arab kingdom focus on improving healthcare for its people.

Jordanian representatives from the institutions and Her Royal Highness Princess Muna Al Hussein visited the university. Hussein helped found the Jordanian Nursing Council, and said she was impressed with the College of Nursing at UT Arlington for its innovative programs.

“I am convinced that, with the diligent efforts of both sides, our collaboration will yield greater results, and our bilateral ties will embrace a brighter future for both sides,” Hussein said in a news release. — Monica S. Nagy
