Tuskegee University, the historically Black educational institution in Alabama, has entered into an agreement with the University of Redlands, a private, liberal arts institution in California. The University of Redlands, near San Bernardino, enrolls about 3,200 undergraduate students and 1,800 graduate students. African Americans make up 4 percent of the undergraduate student body.
Under the agreement, students and faculty at Tuskegee University and the University of Redlands will have the opportunity to spend up to one year on the campus of the partnering institution.
Ralph Kunci, president of University of Redlands, stated that “our historic new alliance with Tuskegee University will bring us impressive new opportunities. The two institutions will enrich and strengthen each other’s scholarship and teaching, as we look forward to exploring an array of potential joint programs together.”
Charlotte P. Morris, interim president of Tuskegee University, added that “partnerships like this with the University of Redlands help to ensure we provide our students, and our faculty, with well-rounded academic and professional experiences.”
