Baylor University in Waco, TX continues to be an exceptional partner providing outstanding educational opportunities for both students and staff.  Baylor professors led our winter term during June and July of 2015 and Baylor EMBA and MBA students visited earlier in the year and studied alongside Northrise MBA students building lifelong relationships.  Baylor also hosted six Northrise staff on their U.S. campus providing valuable training and development and building long-term relationships with their counterparts in the U.S.  The Baylor School of Nursing helped to launch the Northrise School of Nursing in Solwezi through our partnership with First Quantum Mines.  Baylor School of Nursing continues to assist with program and curriculum development and expanding our relationships with other organizations.

Our longstanding partnership with Dordt College based in Sioux Center, Iowa continues to provide much needed support for the development of our agricultural programs and understanding of long-term sustainability.  The president of Dordt College visited our campus during Impact Ndola in July 2015 and met with several of our staff and Board of Trustee members.  Professor Ron Vos, a long time supporter of Northrise Farms, shared with local farmers and staff a biblical approach to farming through the Foundations of Farming course.  Northrise looks forward to expanding its partnership with Dordt College.
