In its consistent bid to extend the frontiers of knowledge, Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Ondo State, Nigeria, has signed Memoranda of Understanding, MoU, with Troy University, USA, and the University of Windsor, Canada.
The MoU, which were signed on Wednesday 30th March and Monday 4th April, 2016, respectively, are happening after AAUA had signed a similar document with Auburn University, Alabama, USA two days earlier.
The Vice Chancellor, Professor Igbekele Ajibefun, who signed on behalf of AAUA, described the agreements as worthy and timely developments, noting that the exercise is in the interest of AAUA’s drive to lead in research and be globally relevant.
Prof. Ajibefun said, “It is a worthy and timely development. It is an exercise in the best interest of our University’s drive to lead in research and to be globally relevant. It is a huge plus for our University in its efforts towards advancing its current status.”
Prof. Ajibefun reiterated the AAUA Management’s commitment to the advancement of the University and the welfare of the staff and students.
He said, “The whole essence of the MoU is for the advancement of our University. It is something that will rub-off on the University’s image, quality of staff and students. The management is leaving no stone unturned in making sure that the status of the University soars higher and the welfare of staff and students improves steadily.”
In their separate reactions, the partnering institutions said the development would bring tremendous benefits to all the parties concerned.
The President of the University of Windsor, Professor Alan Wideman, said, “It is a propitious friendship that will advance both universities.”
The Chancellor of Troy University, Jack Hawkins, said “the partnership portends great advantages and promises for both Universities.”
