Seminole State signs partnership with Denmark college

Sitting: Dr. Hanne Helleshoj, president of Basic Health Care College in Denmark; and Dr. Laura Ross, vice president of Academic Affairs at Seminole State. Standing: Dr. David Mealor, associate vice president for the University of Central Florida Sanford/Lake Mary Regional Campus; Donald Payton, director of governmental relations; Dr. Angela Kersenbrock, associate vice president of the School of Career and Professional Programs; and Kevin Konecny, director of the Center for Global Engagement.

Seminole State College of Florida and Basic Health Care College of Fredericia-Vejle-Horsens, Denmark, have signed to a five-year partnership, the first agreement between Seminole State and an international college or university.

As part of the memorandum of understanding signed on Oct. 2, the two colleges agree to develop faculty and staff exchanges, and also to share educational materials.

“We anticipate this will be the first of many agreements between Seminole State and international colleges and universities,” said Dr. Laura Ross, vice president of Academic Affairs. “This partnership is beneficial for both colleges. Basic Health Care College is extremely interested in healthcare simulation, hospital partnerships, and academic tutoring, all areas of strength at Seminole State. Our faculty and students will gain a greater understanding of the global nature of healthcare, strengthening cultural diversity.”

Seminole State hosted 20 faculty and administrators from the college, located in southwest Denmark, to gain a better understanding of programs in each country and to discuss collaborative exchanges.

During the three-day tour of Seminole State, which included stops at the Altamonte Springs and Sanford/Lake Mary campuses, the Danish educators sat in on healthcare classes, learned more about healthcare simulation labs, received an overview of the college’s early childhood development program; and learned about DirectConnect to UCF, the College’s partnership with the University of Central Florida.

The visit is part of a renewed international effort as the College builds a Center for Global Engagement, Ross added. The center, created in 2012, promotes service learning, study abroad and internationalization efforts.

Basic Health Care College has about 2,000 students enrolled in health and childcare programs.
