Ionian University is extending its international reach through the establishment of its new international office in the city of New York. This development is a product of the continuous fruitful activity that the institution has demonstrated in the last two years in the field of international educational and research collaborations with American HE institutions, such as Johns Hopkins University, George Mason University, and recently with Texas Health Science Center – a collaboration resulting from discussions held within the framework of the Pharos Summit 2022 – Greek – U.S. Collaboration in Higher Education.
The Ionian University’s office in New York aims to serve as an academic and administrative hub for programming research and educational initiatives and facilitate impactful collaborations between the Greek university and its American partners.
The office will be housed in a place provided by the historic Greek Orthodox Church of Agios Spyridon at 124 Wadsworth Avenue, New York, NY 10033, with the simultaneous support of members of the Greek diaspora.
The Rector of the Ionian University, Professor Andreas Floros, stated that “The opening of our founding office in the city of New York is a very important initiative, a milestone in the history of the Ionian University. Our University is once again leading the way by creating an administrative structure in the U.S. that will support all existing and future synergies with American HE institutions. The era of extroversion for the Ionian University is now a reality, delimited by the particular dynamics of a small-sized academic institution that can design and develop significant and forward-looking global synergies. We warmly thank both the Greek Orthodox Church and the members of the Greek diaspora for supporting our initiative, from the first time”.
The opening of the new office of the Ionian University in New York is scheduled to take place within the first quarter of 2023.
