Ionian University Establishes Office in NY
A new dynamic perspective of academic development is created for Ionian University by establishing its office in the city of New York. This development is a natural continuation of the intense activity that the Ionian University has demonstrated during the last two years in the field of cultivating international research collaborations with university institutions in the United States of America, such as Johns Hopkins and George Mason Universities, but also recently with Texas / Health Science Center – a collaboration resulting from the discussions held within the framework of the Pharos Summit 2022 initiative organized by the Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs.
With the establishment of the new office in New York, an academic and administrative hub of the Ionian University is created for the first time outside of Greece, which will contribute to the strengthening of existing partnerships, but also to the cultivation of new ones, both at the research and educational level.
The Ionian University office in New York will be housed in a space allocated for this purpose by the historic Greek Orthodox Church of Agios Spyridon at 124 Wadsworth Avenue, New York, NY 10033, with the simultaneous support of members of the Greek diaspora, thus ensuring and the necessary personnel for its organization and operation, without financial burden for the University.
In his statement regarding the establishment of the new office, the Rector of the Ionian University, Professor Andreas Floros, stated that “the opening of our founding office in the city of New York is a significant initiative, a milestone in the history of the Ionian University. Our Institution is once again leading the way by creating an administrative structure in the United States of America that will operationally support all existing and future synergies with American academic institutions. “.
The opening of the new office of the Ionian University in New York is scheduled to take place within the first quarter of 2023.
