York University Provost and Vice-President Academic Lisa Philipps has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between York University and the University of East Anglia (UEA) in Norwich, England, on behalf of York University’s Faculty of Education.
The MOU signifies the positive academic relations between the two institutions and provides a model for future collaboration in the area of education.
“The [UEA’s] School of Education & Lifelong Learning is one of the U.K.’s premier schools of education,” said Lyndon Martin, dean of the Faculty of Education. “We look forward to collaborating with them and building a deeper relationship across all aspects of our work.”
The MOU focuses on exploring collaborative opportunities, including student and faculty exchanges, joint degree programs, and working together on research and other projects.
The MOU was signed by Philipps and Professor Neil Ward, deputy vice-chancellor of UEA, in August.
UEA is ranked in the top 15 in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, and its School of Education & Lifelong Learning is one of the U.K.’s premier centres for teaching and research in professional education and training.
