ASU helps KPI confront challenges brought about by Russia’s invasion

The second working meeting between representatives of the Arizona State University (ASU) and the administration of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute (KPI) took place in late June.

KPI administrators, Julia Rosen, ASU Vice President of Global Academic Initiatives, and Roman Sheremeta, Founding Rector of the American University of Kyiv (AUK) powered by ASU, exchanged thoughts about ASU’s support in the following areas:

  • Increase capacity for innovative, asynchronous and/or hybrid digital teaching and learning 
  • Supply laptops or other computers for computer laboratories, faculty and students. Provide the replacement of laboratory instruments and supplies
  • Assist with entrepreneurial activities such as support for start-up companies, incubators, and technology transfer.

As a next step, KPI should submit a detailed list with the clear description of immediate needs to the American partners for budgetary estimates.

It is important to note that ASU and AUK have decided to help KPI confront the incredible challenges brought about by Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine at the very beginning of the war.
