UCC and Zonta Club host Ukrainian delegation

Umpqua Community College and the Roseburg Area Zonta Club will host a delegation, consisting of five delegates and a facilitator, Nov. 8-16. The delegates are from Uzhhorod National University and Kremenchuk Technical University in Ukraine.

“The focus of the delegation's visit is to learn about the American education system in general and to explore ways to collaborate with UCC,” explained Pete Bober, director of UCC’s Small Business Development Center and a member of the UCC delegation. “It’s a cultural and professional exchange that is truly invaluable to UCC and Zonta.”

This visit parallels one to Ukraine by UCC staff and faculty members in April.

While in Roseburg, delegates will receive detailed briefings on higher education and democratic activities from UCC staff, community members, other educators, and tribal and elected officials. They will visit Oregon State University, the Douglas County Museum, the Douglas County Courthouse, and the Oregon Coast. They will also have free time with their local host families to shop and sightsee.

“The volunteer host families are critical to the exchange experience for our delegates,” added Bober. “They provide lodging and allow them to interact with Americans in a relaxed family environment during their stay. They introduce delegates to our community, take them to see local sights and serve as extended family.”

UCC and the Zonta Club of Roseburg have hosted seven different Open World delegations since 2007. This is the sixth delegation from Ukraine and the fourth from Kremenchuk and Uzhhorod universities. Open World is funded by the U.S. State Department and the Library of Congress and brings professional leaders from Eurasia to the U.S. for intensive one-week professional development seminars and cultural interactions.
