Haigazian University President Visits Sister Institutions in Armenia

As part of his efforts in engaging effectively with sister institutions, Haigazian University President, Rev. Dr. Paul Haidostian paid a three-day-visit to Yerevan, Armenia, on September 3-5, 2008.

During this short sojourn, Haidostian met with the President of the Evangelical Theological Academy of Armenia, Dr. John Khanjian, as well as the Representative of the Armenian Missionary Association of America (AMAA) in Armenia, Rev. Rene Leonian, and its Operations Manager and Deputy Representative, Harout Nercesian.

Haidostian visited the American University of Armenia, a sister institution to Haigazian University, and conducted cordial meetings with its provost, Dr. Lucig Danielian and senior staff.

Haidostian met with the Vice President of the Lincy Foundation, Mr. Harout Sassounian, as well as the Ambassador of Armenia to Egypt, Mr. Roupen Karapetian, both visiting Armenia at the time, and had the unique opportunity to meet with the President of the Diaspora Committee, Mrs. Hranoush Hagopian, and delivered a lecture on ''''Diaspora Dynamics'''' to the staff of the newly formed Ministry of the Diaspora, which will be launched in October 2008.

Upon his return and before the academic year starts, Haidostian considered those refreshing visits in Armenia as positive and beneficial to both Haigazian University and its subsequent sister institutions, hoping for a fruitful start-of-the-year.
