I. INTRODUCTION A. History and Description of the Exchange
The genesis of this exchange has its roots in a Sister Cities program which was initiated in 1989, with Vladimir, Russia, a city of about 400,000 people. Vladimir is also the home of Vladimir State University (VSU), the premier engineering university in that region of Russia. While the Russian representatives were touring their American sister city, they stopped at the university in that city and visited the Industrial Technology Department. During that visit two individuals, one American and the other Russian, spent some time in discussion and discovered that they were both university professors specializing in technology and both were interested in the possibility of an educational exchange for their students and faculty.
Discussions progressed and resulted in a signed agreement between the two universities, committing both institutions to a three-week exchange of students and faculty. The Americans were scheduled to travel during the month of May, and the Russians in October. The stated purpose of this exchange was to observe foreign industrial technology, to provide cross-cultural experiences, and give the students and faculty an opportunity to collaborate on technical projects.
