JGU and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (HSPH) at Harvard University have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to expand and reinforce their institutional collaboration. JGU has collaborated with Harvard University since its establishment in 2009. The two universities have developed an extensive academic relationship through joint conferences, joint research programmes and an annual study abroad programme at Harvard University for nearly 30 students of JGU.
Both universities have agreed to collaborate in three areas – the first area where the two institutions will reinforce their collaboration is student engagement through an annual teaching session at Harvard for JGU students. The second area of collaboration is through joint conferences on themes of interest to both the institutions. Third, the MoU opens the way for other research and educational activities, including joint research projects, joint training and capacity building programmes and joint publications in the field of human rights, development and public health.
