McMaster Renews and Expands Partnership with Aga Khan University

June 10, 2024 | Canada

From addressing global health inequities to building the next generation of public policy leaders, McMaster and Aga Khan University (AKU) have signed an agreement aimed at working together to solve some of the world’s most pressing societal challenges.

Through student and faculty exchanges, knowledge sharing, co-supervision of PhD students, and a host of other interdisciplinary partnership initiatives, the agreement will spark academic and research collaborations across a wide range of Faculties and areas of study.

“There is much we can learn from each other, and much we can do together to build healthier, stronger communities globally,” says McMaster President, David Farrar. “This agreement is an important step in developing important research and academic collaborations that will deliver meaningful impacts, for our respective institutions and for our broader communities”.

The MOU builds upon a long history of cooperation between McMaster and AKU, which began 40 years ago with McMaster’s support to launch AKU’s School of Nursing in Pakistan – a program that has since grown to include campuses in Afghanistan, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and the United Kingdom.

Reflecting on this invaluable relationship, AKU President, Sulaiman Shahabuddin says, “McMaster can take pride in its role in enhancing the reputation and the practice of nursing in Pakistan and East Africa, and in creating rewarding professional opportunities for thousands of women, through its partnership with AKU.”
