sojourner-douglas-collegeSojourner-Douglass College in Baltimore has entered into a partnership agreement with Saint Monica University: The American International University in Cameroon. Sojourner-Douglass College enrolls about 1,100 students and about 90 percent of the student body is Black. It is not designated a historically Black college because it was founded after 1964.

The agreement calls for transferring credits for students of both institutions so students from Sojourner-Douglass can study in Africa and students in Cameroon can earn credits or complete their degree programs in the United States.

Simmons, president and founder of Sojourner-Douglass College. “The purpose of this strategic alliance and partnership is to provide in concert the quality, depth, breadth and sustainability of blended educational programming that neither of the parties to this agreement is able to provide alone.”
