“BYU, University of Jordan Establish Ties,” Ensign, Dec. 1994, 72
In a move that formalizes educational exchanges that have been occurring over the past several years, officials from BYU in Provo, Utah, and the University of Jordan in Amman, Jordan, signed an agreement to establish ties of friendship and cooperation and to promote mutual understanding through possible academic, cultural, and personnel exchanges.
Two years ago, BYU officials traveled to Jordan to help with admissions for students interested in attending the Church university. Several students from Jordan have attended BYU recently, including the children of a top government official.
“The latest agreement doesn’t commit either institution to anything, so it will largely depend on what we both put into it,” observed BYU President Rex E. Lee. “However, the agreement does have the potential to further strengthen our relationship—and through us the relationship of the Church—with Jordan.”
