Partnerships and Affiliations

  • National Partnerships


    One of MKU's fundamental objectives is "to foster unity by networking with other organizations, on the campuses of educational institutions and in the community." In order to meet this goal, we partner with national groups in order to  provide a larger knowledge base for our members pursuant to issues in the Diaspora. In addition, partnerships are intended to foster collaboration, and networking, and to create personal/professional development opportunities for our members.
