Geneseo Part of Expanding Academic Partnership with the University of the West Indies

GENESEO, N.Y. – Geneseo is among 10 SUNY campuses participating in an expanded partnership with theUniversity of the West Indies (UWI) to further collaborative research and instruction by teams of faculty members from both institutions. UWI is the world's first multinational university with 16 member countries.

To support the new system-to-system partnership between SUNY and UWI, both institutions have allocated seed funds to specific projects. The six top proposals for the funds were selected based on the feasibility of the project in terms of expertise in the research or instructional faculty involved and potential project sponsors. SUNY's Office of Global Affairs and UWI Central's Office for Regional and International Affairs selected the projects for funding.

Geneseo facult Lisa Meyer, y members are leading two of the six projects. William Lofquist, professor of sociology, andassociate professor of sociology, are leading the project "Enhancing Citizen Security in the Caribbean. They will be working with faculty from the University at Buffalo, UWI-Mona, UWI-St. Augustine and UWI-Cave Hill.

Ruel McKnight, associate professor of chemistry, will lead the project "SUNY/UWI Health-Related Research and Educational Collaborations in Natural Products and Medicinal Chemistry." He will be working with faculty members from UWI-Mona.

Broad collaboration in both research and academic programs is seen by both systems as a prerequisite for deep and sustainable relationships.
"Continued engagement with the international academic community is vital to New York's competitiveness in today's global economy," said SUNY Board Chairman H. Carl McCall. "With New York's diverse population and historic and ongoing ties to the Caribbean, this partnership is a natural fit for SUNY, and we look forward to working with UWI."

SUNY and UWI began working together in fall 2012, signing a formal memorandum of understanding in January 2013.

"SUNY and the University of the West Indies have a unique opportunity to develop a broad relationship that will advance our research and instruction in the areas of marine sciences, environmental sciences, health, education and other fields," said Mitch Leventhal, SUNY's vice chancellor for global affairs. "The proposals selected from a strong pool of applications for seed funding exemplify our purpose in bringins together our campuses for the benefit of all. The sharing of resources and expertise is both directions will lead to new opportunities for our students, our faculty and our communities in New York and the Caribbean."
