East European University (EEU) has become an Advance HE member – the first Georgia-based university to do so.
EEU’s Rector, Dr Kakhaber Lazarashvili, said, “We are delighted to have become an Advance HE member and proud to be the first in Georgia. In our short history, EEU has been able to build trust locally and internationally as a quality-oriented, modern corporate-style institution and we have made rapid and significant progress in all areas of educational activities.
“Advance HE membership will help us build on this, offering invaluable opportunities for teaching and learning development, supporting staff to flourish academically, promoting networking and sharing European and international experiences.”
Ian Hall, Advance HE Head of Membership (International), said, “We’re very much looking forward to working with colleagues from EEU. In particular, we will be exploring enhancing teaching through Fellowship and rewarding and recognising teaching excellence through the lens of the Professional Standards Framework. More than this though, the University has joined a global community dedicated to sharing good practice so that staff and students thrive and get the best experience from higher education wherever it’s delivered.”
EEU has three faculties: Law and Social Sciences, Business and Engineering, and Healthcare Sciences, with more than 3000 students, including international students from 14 countries worldwide and 20 educational programmes for undergraduates, Masters and PhDs. It is “one of the outstanding non-state universities in Georgia that strives to ensure the implementation of international educational standards in teaching and research and to build a notable educational centre in the region.”
