Belize's Minister of Education, Patrick Faber, spent the day at VSU's Center for International Programs.

Faber, who's a VSU alum, hopes the trip will strengthen Belize's partnership with the university.

He says many of his country's teachers are not properly trained and that VSU staff helps provide computer and teacher training for them.

"That is where the universities like Valdosta State that have colleges of education are able to lend us their professional people in order to train our teachers so they can be more effective," said Faber.

Valdosta State is one of 34 institutions that supports education in Belize.
