Dear friends and colleagues at the German Jordanian University, dear GJU family,

Congratulations on 15 years of GJU from Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences!

As your core partner and managing party of the German project funding, we are delighted about GJU’s great success: an extraordinary and unique university where transnational education is lived out in everyday university life – by students, teachers and staff.

Our joint success has been manifold over the last 15 years. Exchange and mutual knowledge transfer build the cornerstone of our collaboration: First and foremost through the core element of GJU’s German Dimension, the German Year for all students. Then, of course, in teaching, applied-oriented projects, our academic networks and via our mobility programmes.

Unfortunately, the Corona crisis has pushed GJU's anniversary and the well-deserved celebrations a little bit into the background. Due to the Corona restrictions, personal contacts with our partners have mostly not been possible over the last year. All the more, we are pleased about the launch of the social media campaign highlighting GJU's 15th anniversary! And we are delighted that the video-series launched by our GJU Project Office last autumn on the occasion of GJU’s anniversary will be part of the campaign!

Under the motto "authentic and diverse" the Project Office was on the lookout for messages from GJU’s German university partners, industrial partners and GJU graduates who are involved in the Project Office's Alumni Ambassadors Programme. The result is a colourful mix of diverse and unique videos. These video messages are intended to show the success, the size and the range of GJU and its intertwined transnational education project. Until May 2021 a new video will be uploaded every fortnight to PO’s and GJU’s website. So: Enjoy - it’s worth taking a look!!

Many thanks to all our partners for their fantastic commitment and once again

Happy Birthday and all the best, GJU!
