The management at the Alabama State University, United States, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Adekunle Ajasin University in Ondo State, Nigeria, TheNews reports.

This agreement means that student and faculty exchange opportunities between the two universities will be made possible.

ASU President Gwendolyn E. Boyd and the vice chancellor of the Nigerian University, Professor Amos Ajibefun, signed the agreement on ASU’s campus.

The meeting also included ASU’s provost and vice president for academic affairs, Dr. Leon C. Wilson; retired ASU professor, Dr. David A. Iyegha; the dean of the College of Science, Mathematics and Technology, Dr. Kennedy Wekesa; and Adekunle Ajasin University professor, Dr. Timothy Adejumo.

“Alabama State University is very internationally focused,” said Boyd. “We have more than 40 countries represented in our student body and faculty. We are open to new international relationships because we know that the students that we are training now will operate in a global environment. They will travel all over the world. They will be engaged in international business and research. So the experiences they have while in college will be of great benefit to them in the future.”

Ajibefun is also excited about what this partnership will mean for the Nigerian students.

“We have students in America and Europe, and they are doing well,” said Ajibefun. “We are very excited to develop this partnership with Alabama State University. I think that we can learn so much from each other, and our students can … develop good relationships and experience a new culture. We want to give our students a global experience so that they can compete globally.”
