A formal student/faculty exchange agreement has been finalized between the Texas State HIM Department and Fashhochschule Hannover (FHH) Univeristy of Applied Sciences and Arts in Hannover, Germany. This agreement provides the opportunity for both HIM faculty and student exchange opportunities between the two universities. Texas State faculty Sue Biedermann, Chair & Associate Professor, and Kim Murphy-Abdouch, Clinical Assistant Professor, traveled to Hannover in October 2011 to meet with faculty and staff there to discuss the exchange opportunities and to provide initial lectures to various groups of students, faculty, and staff.
