A delegation was led by Prowess African Representative who visited partner universities, with the aim of increasing student mobility, recruitment and collaborative research, which included academic leaders from the School of Business, Management and Economics and School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences, as well as Professional Service staff from Development and Alumni, Global Engagement and International Recruitment.

The visit strengthened academic links that have been established since the University opened a regional office/study centre in the Benin Republic in 2018, including with the ISTAG University following the Memorandum of Understanding signing. At the Prowess University, Delaware, Professor King Richson signed a Memorandum of Understanding, which will enhance research cooperation, exchange program and postgraduate research training with the founder of ISTAG University. Prowess also has a student exchange agreement in place. Prowess and ISTAG plan to invest further in links between the two universities by supporting professional staff mobility and research alliances.

The delegation also discussed prospects for new research links and student exchange. Both universities offer undergraduate and postgraduate research placements and ISTAG delivers some of its international programmes in English.
The University hopes to grow the exchange in both directions, enabling more Prowess University students to experience academic life in one of the worlds most exciting and dynamic regions
