Jan 13, 2021
On Dec. 10, 2020, the University of Minnesota School of Nursing and the Nursing School of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil commemorated and celebrated the signing of a new partnership agreement. The agreement is anchored in a commitment to scholarship and research.

Dean Connie White Delaney, PhD, RN, FAAN, FACMI, FNAP, noted two unique aspects of the agreement at the virtual signing ceremony, including that it is the first time the school is signing a 10-year agreement and it is the first signing that was agreed to without a visit to the partner campus.

“Your visits to the University of Minnesota and sharing the depth and the breadth of your university and your commitment and vision are so compelling, we’re ready to commit,”

“Your visits to the University of Minnesota and sharing the depth and the breadth of your university and your commitment and vision are so compelling, we’re ready to commit,” said Delaney, noting the value of virtual tours and richness of the relationships built over the years.

“This agreement will be a great opportunity for us to share knowledge in nursing science,” said Professor Ana Maria Muller Magalhães, PhD. “We are happy with this partnership to promote coordination and exchange in research activities, academic publications, exchange of faculty members and students between our universities.”
