Rector Commandant, Brig. Gen. Dariusz Skorupka, DSc, Eng., led the delegation of our University, which included the Representative of the Rector Commandant for International Cooperation and Protocol, Colonel Krzysztof Klupa, PhD, and Vice-Dean for Military Affairs of the Management Faculty, Major Marcin Bielewicz, PhD.

The delegation visited the University of North Georgia in Dahlonega (UNG). This Dahlonega-based university is the first American partner of AWL, with which we entered into a cooperation agreement during the June visit to Wrocław of Bonita Jacobs, President of UNG. The aim of the visit was to become familiarised with the structure of education at the American university and to determine further directions of cooperation with our university. It was also an excellent opportunity to exchange experiences as regards the training of land forces commanders, in particular the forming of the leadership competencies of cadets. Further fields of agreement were agreed on, including scientific internships of teaching staff and research and publishing cooperation. The latest element of cooperation will be the joint publishing of The International Journal of Security Studies, a journal reaching audiences worldwide, which promotes the publishing activities of cadets in the field of international security. Under the signed cooperation agreement, AWL cadets will start their studies at UNG as early as in January 2017, while AWL will host UNG cadets as part of the summer international semester in the 2016/2017 academic year. The Military University of Land Forces is developing international cooperation by collaborating with its European and American partners. Currently, in addition to cooperating with UNG and USMA at West Point, the University is negotiating collaboration agreements with the University of Charleston and Western Illinois University. Extended cooperation with foreign centres will provide cadets and teaching staff with greater opportunities to enrich their interests, competences and professional development. It will also facilitate participation in programmes organised by foreign partners of AWL for a greater number of individuals.
