Academic City is committed to redefining tertiary learning on the continent and seeks to achieve this by learning from the esteemed efforts of renowned institutions in the world. As such, Academic City recently signed an international partnership agreement with Millersville University of Pennsylvania, USA, to officiate the knowledge-sharing process between the two universities.
The memorandum of understanding (MOU) was signed following the inauguration of the 15th Millersville University president, Dr. Daniel Wubah, a prominent Ghanaian American scholar, who serves on Academic City’s Governing Council. During the inauguration ceremony, Academic City’s president, Dr. Fred McBagonluri, and director of strategy, Sunitha Jenarius, were honored as the heads of Academic City, an innovation-driven university in West Africa.
Dr. McBagonluri and Ms. Jenarius, during their visit, interacted with faculty of the Department of Applied Engineering, Safety & Technology including the department chair, Dr. Len Litowitz, and graduate program coordinator, Dr. Scott Warner, who gave a tour of the department. The department adopts an innovative approach to learning and exposes students to design projects and the use of cutting-edge technology such as 3D printers while creating a conducive atmosphere consisting of maker spaces to transform students into highly qualified professionals in the fields of technical business, industry, government or education.
As part of the MOU, Academic City and Millersville University will work together on a variety of programs targeting study abroad programs for students and faculty from both institutions as well as facilitating the transfer and graduate opportunities for students from Academic City. Academic City is excited about the many opportunities that this partnership with Millersville University will bring to benefit students and faculty in both institutions.
