Winston-Salem State University in North Carolina has entered into a partnership agreement with Kenyatta University in Nairobi, Kenya. Under the agreement, the two universities will engage in faculty and student exchanges and collaborate on research projects.
Corey D.B. Walker, dean of the College of Arts, Sciences, Business, and Education at Winston-Salem State University, stated that “this agreement creates another opportunity for our students and faculty to engage in global conversations with colleagues in advancing the frontiers of knowledge and human understanding. As a historically black university, we are particularly delighted about the opportunity to collaborate with our colleagues on the African continent. Our relationship with Kenyatta University will provide our students with a unique opportunity to gain innovative global perspectives while developing a deeper appreciation and nuanced understanding of the rich histories and cultures of Africa.”
Joti Sekhon, director of international programs at the university, added that “this agreement will take WSSU to the next level of student and faculty engagement with diversities in Sub-Sahara Africa as part of a dynamic global environment, and enhance the WSSU strategic mission to prepare students for success through academic excellence and curriculum internationalization.”
