Sign Up

On March 22, 2023, Valencia College and University of Central Florida signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Minister of Education and Sport from Aruba, Endy Croes, with the goal of fostering sustainable collaborations.

Valencia's agreement was for general international collaboration, and the possibility of creating a future addendum which includes a limited number of scholarships for Aruban students. We believe that this MoU will benefit not only Aruban students in Florida but also strengthen the bond between the two regions.

The Minister Plenipotentiary for Aruba in the U.S., Joselin S. Croes, Honorary Consul of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Orlando, Patrick C. Willemsen, and the Deputy Consul General of the Consulate in Miami, Luuk Nijman were present at the occasion.

Many thanks to the staff at Valencia College, Talia Popovski, senior director, international student services; Mia Čančarević, director, international student recruitment; and Jason Davis, international recruitment specialist for representing our college.

We are excited to see the positive impact of this collaboration and look forward to more opportunities for partnership in the future.

The signing was filmed for a TV segment produced by Telearuba and broadcast on Telenoticia.  The broadcast also interviews Minister Endy Croes, of Education and Sport and Talia Popovski, Senior Director of the International Student Services department of Valencia College, Aruban students, and shows college life.
