It is with regret I announce that we will be suspending our Nairobi program this coming summer. As many of you are aware, Kenya is suffering an ongoing crisis that has compromised public safety. There were serious flaws in the recent election of December 27, 2007, and many Kenyan citizens are unwilling to accept the results announced by the government. Doubts about the legitimacy of the election have released long-simmering ethnic tensions that have fueled the disorder. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Kenyan people. We hope that the crisis will be resolved soon with a quick end to the violence. We have had a partnership with the University of Nairobi since 1988 and look forward to renewing the partnership as soon as possible.
For those of you interested in our other study abroad programs in Geneva, Sydney and Venice, we will make room for you. Contact Arlene Trapuzzano at 302-477-2248.
