NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The University of New Orleans has entered into an agreement with Universite des Antilles in Martinique and Guadeloupe to engage in joint academic activities.

Leaders from UNO said in a news release that as part of the five-year agreement, UNO and UA will arrange exchanges of faculty, students and research as well as organize and perform research projects, academic seminars and guest lectures.

Leaders from UA visited UNO’s campus Monday for a signing ceremony.

In September UNO faculty members Richard Speaker and Juliana Starr visited UA as part of a Louisiana delegation that was exploring opportunities to collaborate. UA is one of two French-speaking universities in the Caribbean.

Speaker says the agreement will give UNO students the chance to improve their French communication skills and engage in cultural exchange.
