THE STORY:

The Ukrainian National Women's League of America (UNWLA) was established in 1925 to unite women of Ukrainian descent, promote knowledge of Ukrainian culture, provide financial assistance to Ukrainians within and outside of the United States, and to work with various international organizations for charitable and educational purposes. Branch 120 of UNWLA is a local branch in Rochester, NY and we are proud to be part of this great organization! This is our second time participating in Photofinish 5K, and this time we are raising funds for an exchange student from Ukraine. In 2013, Nazareth College in Rochester, NY and the National University of Ostroh Academy, Ukraine established a cooperative relationship to promote the development of collaborative educational projects for the benefit of both institutions’ faculty members, departments, institutes and students. During the 2015-2016 academic year, significant steps were taken by both sides to strengthen that relationship. On the initiative of Nevan Fisher Associate Vice President for Global Programs and Executive Director of the Center for International Education, Nazareth College during his first visit to the National University Ostroh Academy, proposed to host the first Ukrainian undergraduate or graduate student during the 2017 spring semester as part of the international student exchange program. Under this agreement, faculty, undergraduate, and graduate students will receive study and research opportunities as part of the exchange program, and no tuition fees are charged by either party. As an additional gesture of good faith, Nazareth College has agreed to waive half the costs of a semester’s room and board fees for a Ukrainian exchange student from the National University Ostroh Academy. To support this project, the Ukrainian Community has agreed to provide funding for the student’s remaining living expenses. UNWLA Branch 120 would like to contribute to the cause with this fundraiser. All the funds collected will go to the remaining housing and meal plan expenses of the exchange student designated by the National University Ostroh Academy to come to Nazareth for the spring 2017 semester. The National University of Ostroh Academy is the successor of the Ostroh Slavic, Greek and Latin Academy, the first higher educational establishment of the Eastern Slavs founded in 1576. The Ostroh Academy was revived in an independent Ukraine in 1994 and in October 2000 officially became the National University of Ostroh Academy. Ostroh Academy has a robust international presence and cooperates with foreign educational and scientific institutions. It actively implements policies to enhance cooperation with international institutions around the world and has over twenty higher education agreements in Europe, Asia and North America. Nazareth College was established in 1924. It has obtained a regional and national reputation for excellence in training future leaders in the liberal arts, sciences, math, music, theater, and professional programs, including health and human services, business, and education. The college offers more than 60 undergraduate majors and 24 graduate degree programs, and is committed to the ideals of civic engagement and public service.
