University of Cape Town

Penn State and the University of Cape Town (UCT) signed a broad institutional agreement in May 2011 to pursue a long-term strategic partnership that would link the two institutions academically through our tripartite mission of teaching, research and service.  This builds upon several ongoing collaborative programs between the two institutions:

  • In BioBehavioral Health, with both research collaborations and opportunities for undergraduate study abroad.
  • In climate change research and in capacity building workshops.
  • Collaborations in Geography teaching a field course in environmental justice and partnering in a study abroad program (Parks and People) in the Eastern Cape (see the Parks and People program description for more information).
  • Faculty exchange and joint teaching of courses in Law
  • Collaborative research, joint teaching of graduate courses
