Under the agreement, the two universities agree to cooperative on research projects and to engage in student and faculty exchanges. Langston University has agreed to appoint visiting scholars to provide hands-on leadership for the effort on the Gregory University, Uturu campus.

Gregory N. Price, acting dean of the business school at Langston University, told JBHE that “the agreement will facilitate research/educational/programmatic collaboration between the two universities, enabling both to globalize their institutions in a mutually beneficial way. The first collaboration will likely involve GUU business students taking courses during a summer semester at Langston University. Given how the entrepreneurship focus of LU’s business program aligns with the job creation imperatives of Nigerian economic policy, it is expected that both GUU and LU students will benefit from the exchange.”
