USjournal and US Department of Commerce Formalize Partnership

USjournal and the U.S. Commercial Service of the U.S. Department of Commerce's International Trade Administration have signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) to increase awareness in U.S. education and training professionals about exporting education and the tools and resources our organizations provide to help them succeed.

We've enjoyed working with Commerce over the years on a number of different projects, noted USjournal's C.I.E.O. Cheryl DarrupBoychuck. Now with this formal affiliation, we look forward to many more years of productive collaboration, to ultimately advance the United States as the premier education destination for students around the world.

Under the MOA, USjournal and the U.S. Commercial Service's network of worldwide offices will work together on marketing, education programs and events leveraging both entities' expertise to help make U.S. organizations more export savvy. Joint activities may include building awareness through outreach at trade shows, direct mail campaigns and online registration for resource support.
