Memorandum of Understanding advances human development, global health, social justice and pluralism.
University of Calgary President Elizabeth Cannon and Aga Khan University President Firoz Rasul have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to facilitate international co-operation toward advancements in human development, global health, social justice and pluralism.
“The world has never been more diverse or interconnected, and the right response to such a world is to reach out across borders to learn from one another, to generate new knowledge together, and to collaborate in tackling crucial challenges and ultimately improving the quality of life of those in need,“ said Rasul.
“This agreement builds on a long-standing, mutually beneficial partnership and lays the path forward to continued leadership and impact for many years to come,” said Cannon. “Both of our universities are committed to higher education and research that benefits the world, and we want to serve our communities as leaders, innovators and key contributors.”
The partnership promotes knowledge sharing, education and research collaborations, student internships and faculty exchanges in diverse areas. Past and present collaborations have included initiatives and programs with the faculties of nursing, arts, graduate studies, the Cumming School of Medicine and the Werklund School of Education.
