AUN partners Tulane University

WorldStage Newsonline-- The American University of Nigeria on Monday said it has established an official relationship with Tulane University in the United States.

According to a statement from the University's spokesman and Assistant Vice President Abba Abubakar Tahir, this action followed a mandate by the Board of Trustees to expand relations with other Universities that can contribute to the quality and growth of AUN.

The first and lead university to sign a memorandum of understanding with AUN is Tulane University of New Orleans, Louisiana, a private non-sectarian university nearly two centuries old, ranked number 50 in the US News and World Report rankings, and in the top 225 Worldwide University ranking of the Times of London, the statement said.

Tulane is expected to assume the role of prime partner with AUN in the establishment of new graduate programs, the training of faculty and staff and the exchange of students. Tulane will also assist AUN in pursuing US accreditation and provide other resources with respect to library, institutional development and grant and proposal writing. Tulane has been chosen for its status, its commitment to international development and its long history of African experience and activities.

Discussions are underway between the two University administrations to explore specific avenues to expand the relationships with a specific action plan for the next two years. The administration of the agreement from the Tulane side will be under the direction of Dr. Eamon Kelly President Emeritus of Tulane as well as former Chair of the Board of the National Science Foundation in the United States. Dr. Kelly is also a member of the Board of AUN, and will provide direct support to AUN senior administration as requested.
