New Opportunities for PathwayConnect Students in Guatemala
GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala — Brigham Young University-Idaho and Universidad Galileo in Guatemala City, Guatemala, have entered into a memorandum of understanding in May to begin collaborating on programs that will benefit students of both institutions.
BYU-Idaho hopes this agreement may provide increased options for PathwayConnect alumni in Guatemala and other Central American countries. “By working with Universidad Galileo, we are hopeful that we can broaden the variety of certificates and degree options available to our Guatemalan PathwayConnect graduates in the future,” said Kevin Shiley, associate dean of Online Programs at BYU-Idaho.
The memorandum aims to develop solutions that may provide:
- Mutually recognized certificates, associate degrees, and/or bachelor’s degrees
- Student and faculty exchange programs
- Articulation agreements to ease transfer of credit between the two universities
“This is a big deal,” said Nathanael Adams, Pathway area manager. “We have been in collaboration with Universidad Galileo for years to make this happen.”
