Delaware State University Inks Partnership With the University of Ibadan in Nigeria

Delaware State University, the historically Black educational institution in Dover, has entered into a new partnership agreement with the University of Ibadan in the West African nation of Nigeria. Harry L. Williams, president of Delaware State University, traveled to Nigeria last month to finalize the agreement.

The agreement calls for collaborations between the institutions’ faculty and staff in the area of research, lectures, and other academic pursuits. The accord also opens the door to future faculty and student exchanges and study abroad programs.

Also, the College of Agriculture and Related Sciences and the Office of International Affairs at Delaware State University will be engaged with the University of Ibadan in a partnership that will focus on solving distinct national and regional development challenges in and outside of Nigeria.
