March 9, 2021
King’s University College has entered into a partnership agreement with the Chandigarh Group of Colleges Jhanjeri Mohali (CGC) of Punjab, India. On March 8, 2021, Dr. David Malloy, King’s Principal, and Dr. Jaskiran Kaur, Director of Management for the Chandigarh Group of Colleges Jhanjeri Mohali, virtually signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).
“King’s is delighted to sign this agreement which facilitates the exchange of students, faculty and staff as well as academic collaboration with the Chandigarh Group of Colleges. This virtual signing is a King’s first and clearly demonstrates that a global pandemic does not stand in the way of forging excellent partnerships,” says Marilyn Mason, Vice-President, Enrolment Services and Strategic Partnerships.
The five-year partnership agreement creates opportunities for joint research activities and the identification of avenues for exchanges, cooperation, joint training, research in disciplines of mutual interest.
A faculty and staff exchange will be facilitated and encouraged for the purpose of international collaboration and mutual benefit for common projects and priorities.
A student exchange program, under the responsibility of the King’s International Office, will promote academic exchange and support intercultural activities and projects between students from Canada and India.
