A student exchange agreement with the Belgian university KU Leuven will enable students to gain international experience, says Michael Khan, dean of human kinetics. He and his counterpart, Christophe Delecluse, signed a bilateral accord Monday.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for students at UWindsor and KU Leuven to diversify their learning experience in two internationally-recognized programs,” says Dr. Khan. “We already have well-established research collaborations between our faculties, and students will be able to benefit from these partnerships through our research-driven teaching.”
Among the connections the schools enjoy are that UWindsor professor Marijke Taks formerly served on the faculty of KU Leuven’s Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Sciences, as well as informal research partnerships involving Khan and Windsor colleagues Todd Loughead and Cheri McGowan.
Under the agreement, Leuven will send master-level students in sport management to Windsor in exchange for senior BHK students.
