Grad Students From Ukraine, Living And Learning At UTC
This semester, two graduate students from war-torn Ukraine joined our campus, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
Arsen Martyshchuk is pursuing a Master of Public Administration degree in the Department of Political Science and Public Service.
Nina Klimenkova is pursuing an MBA in the Gary W. Rollins College of Business.
They are the first recipients of theUTC Global Response Assistantship, which provides full tuition, room and board, and a monthly stipend - one of only a few graduate programs for Ukrainian students in this country, and the only one in Tennessee.
I spoke with the students - and Dr. Takeo Suzuki, executive director of the UTC Global Center for Education.
