The Iowa State University/University of Glasgow Veterinary Student Exchange
In 1984 the presidents of Iowa State University and the University of Glasgow (Scotland) signed an agreement authorizing exchanges between the two institutions. The program at present consists of five parts: 1) a one-year exchange of undergraduates on a one-to-one basis, participants paying both academic fees and room and board to their home universities; 2) three-month to one-year faculty visits on either an exchange or an individual basis; 3) scientific employees; 4) six- to ten-week exchange visits by veterinary students to conduct clinical classwork; and 5) summer employment by Glasgow students in ISU laboratories. The ISU/Glasgow Exchange Program is the most complete exchange program between an American and an overseas university. Dr. Peter J. Reilly, a professor in chemical engineering at Iowa State University has been the coordinator of the ISU program since its beginning.
