Delaware State University has signed a new partnership with GE in Nigeria.
The new partnership will allow the university to send students to Nigeria for internships in engineering, manufacturing and business fields, and set up other exchanges.
The collaboration comes as the result of work by a DSU alumna, Pamela Jackson Hall. She went to work for GE in Nigeria after earning physics and engineering degrees.
“What we’re doing is because there’s a real need. It’s not because I’m an alumna, it’s not because this university is a great university,” she said.
DSU has many international students from Africa, some of whom were present at Wednesday’s ceremony to kick off the new Nigeria programme.
