Media Cover Arcadia’s Paris Meeting with PA Gov. Tom Corbett
March 23, 2012
Market Watch and the Bradenton Herald (Bradenton, Fl.) reported that 10 representatives from Arcadia University and the American Graduate School in Paris (AGS) met with Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett during a reception hosted for the Governor's first investment and trade mission to France, on March 21.
The Master's in International Relations and Diplomacy at the American Graduate School in Paris is an affiliated program of Arcadia University in Glenside, PA, in the greater Philadelphia area (www.arcadia.edu). Arcadia President Carl (Tobey) Oxholm III invited the American Graduate School in Paris to represent Arcadia University at the reception, as alumni of this program are also alumni of Arcadia University.
The Governor spoke to each of the AGS/Arcadia participants and met with Alexis Delabre, chairman of the board of AGS, and Eileen Servidio, president of the School of International Relations and Diplomacy at AGS who were also in attendance. In his speech about economic, cultural and educational development in Pennsylvania, Governor Corbett then cited Arcadia as one of the state's major universities represented at the reception.
"Through its affiliation with Arcadia, and through the very nature of its programs, the American Graduate School in Paris hopes to take a small part in the larger mission of transatlantic cooperation between France and the US. Discussing these matters with Governor Tom Corbett and his Cabinet members was therefore a very constructive opportunity as they seem extremely keen on encouraging this kind of cooperation," says Alexis Delabre.
