The University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing is further demonstrating that What Starts Here, Changes the World by extending the School’s presence internationally.

Earlier this year, UT Austin formalized agreements with three universities in South Korea that have colleges of nursing: Yonsei University, Seoul National University, and The Catholic University of Korea.

Then, these efforts were commemorated in May 2024 when leaders from UT Austin School of Nursing visited the leaders of the respective colleges of nursing to build upon established university-level agreements to explore specific areas of collaboration.

“Our relationships with these universities and their nursing programs help strengthen Texas Nursing as a global partner in nursing research and education and will increase our global visibility,” said UT Austin School of Nursing Dean Eun-Ok Im. “They share in our values and mission to foster nurse leaders and advance nursing research worldwide.”

Under the agreements, the three universities in South Korea will develop academic exchanges and cooperation programs in education and research with Texas Nursing.

“We look forward to growing our presence internationally and within our own communities,” said Hyekyun Rhee, associate dean and director of UT Austin School of Nursing Center for Global and Community Nursing. “We aim to connect nursing education stakeholders from around the world.”

Texas Global assisted in the efforts to broaden the scope of activities and the School of Nursing’s global position.
