Cooperative Agreement Signed by Universities Serving Blacks in the United States and Colombia

For the past century Phelps Stokes has helped to improve educational opportunities for blacks and other minorities. Now the nonprofit organization has entered into an agreement with the National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges and the Association of Colombiana de Universidades to strengthen cooperation between historically black colleges and universities in the United States with universities serving Afro-Colombian students.

Under the agreement the universities will participate in cultural activities, research initiatives, internships, and faculty and student exchange programs.
