University of Valladolid

In January 2015, Kennesaw State University signed a memorandum of understanding with the University of Valladolid in Valladolid, Spain.

The main goal of the MOU is to establish a cooperative agreement for the systematic exchange of academic and professional staff and students between the two universities. This cooperation can take the form of faculty, student, and staff exchanges. Ultimately, KSU and UVa would like to offer linked degree programs.
