Radford University Key Developments
Radford University Partners with Virginia Tech to Bolster International Education
Jan 25 14
Radford University announced a new partnership with Virginia Tech with the establishment of the Language and Culture Institute at Radford University (LCI@RU). This collaboration combines the 40 years of experience the Virginia Tech Language and Culture Institute has in providing English language programs and the unique academic opportunities available at RU. The LCI@RU will accept international students who seek opportunities at American universities and offer an intensive English course that will provide those students with the necessary language skills for their academic success. During a LCI@RU session, students will attend language classes Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. over a period of 8 or 16 weeks. Intensive courses like these have been shown to encourage the growth of international communities on campus. The program provides full-time classroom instruction in all skill areas, including listening, speaking, reading, writing, and pronunciation, from beginning through advanced proficiency levels, supplemented by self-paced, interactive computer-assisted training. Opening a branch of the center at Radford also offers international students the opportunity for conditional admission to the university. Operated by the Virginia Tech Language and Culture Institute, the new center will provide instruction in English language and academic study skills geared toward international students while also facilitating intercultural understanding and offering support and guidance on nonacademic issues.
Radford University and Commonwealth Care of Roanoke, Inc. Team Up to Find Effective Treatment for Depression and Agitation
Jan 17 14
Radford University is working with CCR (Commonwealth Care of Roanoke Inc.), to examine the effectiveness of bright light exposure for individuals with dementia. This study is being funded by the Virginia Alzheimer's and Related Diseases Research Award Fund. Many older adults with dementia living in long-term care facilities experience depression and agitation. Current treatments for depression and agitation are primarily behavioral and pharmacological. While research results to date are inconclusive, bright light exposure appears to reduce depression and agitation in these residents. This experimental study seeks to determine whether or not bright light therapy is an effective treatment that can be added to the available repertoire of strategies used to treat these conditions. Radford University and CCR are to be working together to investigate whether or not bright light exposure reduces depression and agitation in older adults with dementia. If bright light exposure makes a difference, it would provide a low-cost, safe option to improve the quality of life of individuals with dementia.
