Exchange program with University of Bologna

Kevin Crocker (second from left), Undergraduate Program Director, recently traveled to Forli, Italy to meet with faculty and administrators of the University of Bologna. Along with UMass Professor Roberto Ludovico (Italian Studies) and Professor Nicholas Xenos (Political Science), they hope to expand and improve our exchange program with the respective departments at the University of Bologna. Crocker stated that "it was a very productive meeting and should create some excellent opportunities for our undergraduates who may have an interest in Cooperative Economics and Business."
