Dartmouth prepares for exchange program in Cuba

The Associated Press

HANOVER (AP) - The U.S. government's recent move to restore full diplomatic relations with Cuba comes as Dartmouth prepares to launch a program to send students and faculty there for 15 weeks next fall.

Dartmouth is launching an advanced studies exchange with the Casa de las Americas and the University of Havana that will allow Dartmouth students and faculty to spend time in Cuba and may eventually bring Cuban students to Hanover.

Professor Lynn Higgins says the loosening of restrictions on Cuban exchanges will open up scholarly communications and opportunities for both students and faculty.
