Bhutan Today covers partnership renewal

Officials at Royal Thimphu College (RTC) in Bhutan and Wheaton strengthened their academic partnership in March by renewing their Memorandum of Understanding, which originally established Wheaton’s study abroad program in Bhutan in 2010.

Bhutan Today and stories in two other Bhutanese publications noted that, as part of the renewed agreement, up to 10 students from RTC will come to Wheaton each year. Selected students will have the opportunity to live on campus, attend classes and extracurricular events, and, perhaps, visit local schools during a two-week period starting in the spring of 2015.
