Maine, Iceland universities to sign off on agreement

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) " The University of Southern Maine and Iceland's Reykjavik (RAY'-kyuh-vik) University will sign an agreement to make it easier for students and faculty to visit the schools.

USM officials say President Glenn Cummings and Reykjavik University President Ari Jonsson will sign the agreement on Friday. The schools began collaborating last August.

USM says the new agreement "sets a course for routine visits" by students and faculty at both schools. The schools are calling it an "internship addendum." Icelandic transportation company Eimskip will also be on hand to discuss a program for internships with the two schools.
