Notre Dame de Namur University Partners with WEgroup

NDNU Retains AIRC-Certified Firm to Boost International Student Enrollment

Belmont, CA, March 31, 2010 — World Education Group, the only US-based student recruitment firm to be certified by the American International Recruitment Council, and Notre Dame de Namur University announced an agreement under which WEGroup will assist NDNU to recruit international students.

Located just outside San Francisco, NDNU is a highly desirable destination for international students and is WEgroup’s first partner institution in California. WEgroup will work with NDNU’s faculty and staff to develop creative and robust recruitment strategies to increase NDNU’s already growing population of international students.

“International students bring much-needed diversity of thought, experience and culture to any American college campus,” said Hernan Bucheli, NDNU Vice President for Enrollment Management. “NDNU is pleased to join the growing ranks of US universities who partner with certified, reputable recruitment agencies to help diversify our student body.”

WEgroup, headquartered in Charlotte, NC, is pleased to add the first West Coast institution to its list of 29 university clients across 20 US states. With WEgroup Vice President and Western Regional Director Chaney Kourouniotis located in the San Francisco Bay Area, the potential for close collaboration and growth is even greater.

“We are very proud to add NDNU to our family of clients,” says WEgroup CEO Dr. Richard W. Ferrin. “NDNU offers our students a close-knit community, plenty of faculty attention and a variety of attractive graduate and undergraduate degree programs. Add that to its stunning campus on the San Francisco Peninsula, and it’s clear that NDNU is an outstanding addition to our client base.”
