WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Winston-Salem State University will be linking with a school in Kenya in an agreement that will lead to student and faculty exchanges and research collaborations.

The school says it has signed a memorandum of understanding with Kenyatta University in Nairobi.

WSSU began working with Kenyatta University several years ago as part of an interdisciplinary study abroad program focusing on culture, language and politics of Kenya and Tanzania, and east Africa in general.

One component of the program relates to exposing students to the diversity of Swahili culture and linguistic development in East Africa through experience with historical and political trends such as indigenous African institutions and the East African slave trade.
