Ties with Brazilian Universities

Iowa State has developed strong ties with several universities in Brazil over the past 10 years through a student exchange program. Thanks to the passionate support of Iowa State’s Brian Steward, and other colleagues, the exchange program has continued to evolve into further opportunities, including a two-week study abroad program.

Four Brazilian students participated in the exchange program at Iowa State during the fall semester – Igor Torres and Jonas Dantas de Miranda Neto from UFCG, and Ligia De Oliveira Serrano and Maria Antônia V. M. Starling from UFV.
