UIS collaborates with a university in Africa

We are happy to announce that the University of Illinois Springfield (UIS) is partnering with the University of the Gambia (UTG) to provide capacity building and develop a longterm partnership and mutual understanding of common and country-specific environmental health issues in the Gambia and the United States.

UIS's mission statement eloquently highlighted the need for scholarly collaboration among professionals at local, regional, state, national, and international communities. Thus, unsurprisingly, the UIS has collaborations and links with thirty-three universities in thirteen countries world-wide.

The partnership was featured in the Illinois Environmental Health Association's March 2011 newsletter.
