FOSTERING GLOBAL CONNECTIONS: A DAY OF COLLABORATION WITH YEUNGNAM UNIVERSITY
Early today on 14th November 2023, Kigali Independent University ULK recently hosted a distinguished delegation from Yeungnam University, in South Korea. This day unfolded as a testament to the spirit of academic exchange, fostering fruitful discussions, and nurturing a shared commitment to knowledge and collaboration.

The delegation engaged in insightful discussions with the authorities of ULK. These dialogues served as a platform for the exchange of ideas, experiences, and visions for the future of education. It’s important to note that, as of now, the partnership with Yeungnam University is in the exploration phase. While we have engaged in fruitful discussions, the formalization of this collaboration is pending, and both sides are working towards signing a Memorandum of Understanding in the near future.
In his remarks, the Vice-Chancellor of ULK Prof. Dr. NKUNDABATWARE Innocent sincerely thanked the Ministry of Education in Rwanda for consistently supporting our efforts. He explained,
“This teamwork, made possible by their support, clearly shows a strong dedication to improving education and building global connections in Rwanda. Their constant support has been crucial in making this initiative successful.”
