Norfolk State University, the historically Black educational institution in Virginia, has entered into partnerships with Inha University and Inha Medical School in South Korea. Inha University enrolls about 22,000 students and is a leader in STEM and medical education in South Korea.

The agreements call for the establishment of research partnerships between Norfolk State and the two South Korean educational institutions. Among the areas of cooperative research will be deep space human exploration, smart optics, and advanced manufacturing nanotechnologies.

In addition to research collaborations, Norfolk State and Inha University and its medical school will engage in student and faculty exchange programs.

Dr. George Miller, dean of the School of Graduate Studies at Norfolk State, noted that “this is good for Norfolk State because it will allow us to continue our work in deep space research with international partners. This will also allow our students and faculty to gain exposure for their contributions on a global scale.”
