Ball State is one of five U.S. universities which have received funding from the U.S. Department of State to partner with a university in Iraq under the University Linkage Program. The goal of the partnership is to help Tikrit University open to the world after three decades of isolation under the dictatorship of Saddam Hussein. Ball State is assisting Tikrit University to update its curriculum in Accounting, Computer Science and English, reform teaching methods, professionally develop its faculty, use technology to strengthen teaching and research, raise levels of English proficiency among students and establish a career center. The effort and exchange of Ball State and Tikrit University faculty over the three years of the project is designed to promote mutual understanding between the peoples of Iraq and the United States.
