In a prestigious partnership years in the making,  the first cohort of 10 students from San Diego has begun classes in Tbilisi, in the Republic of Georgia.    Likewise, 7 Georgian students  from Chemistry and Engineering are now attending the San Diego SDSU campus.  Housing and meals are funded on both sides of the exchange, and all courses are taught in English.   Background information on the genesis of this unique US/Georgian partnership is here.  Form more information on the program, and to inquire about the Fall 2017 program, contact Dr. Nancy Marlin,
