King’s College London

UNC-Chapel Hill’s partnership with King’s College London, a research-led public university in the heart of London founded in 1828, exemplifies a commitment to building robust and multi-level global collaborations. In 2005, the UNC-King’s Strategic Alliance was established, initiated by the College of Arts and Sciences at UNC-Chapel Hill and the School of Arts and Humanities and School of Social Science and Public Policy at King’s. The alliance has expanded to become one of the most ambitious partnerships between U.S. and U.K. universities, including longstanding and emerging joint activity in teaching, research and other initiatives in diverse fields.

A vibrant student exchange has taken place since 2002, with more than 900 students participating. Graduate students benefit from short-term visits, student-organized workshops and joint doctoral committees. Individual cooperation by faculty members has grown into broader collaboration including conferences, colloquia, joint research projects and publications.

A wide range of areas are involved, including American studies, anthropology, art, classics, communication, digital humanities, dramatic arts, English, geography, German, global studies, history, information and library science, law, mathematics, medieval studies, medical humanities, music, philosophy, political economy, political science, religious studies and war studies. Collaborations in health affairs are also being developed in medicine (including oncology), nursing and public health. In 2020, UNC and King’s established the DentAlliance, together with the National University of Singapore and the University of Melbourne, to advance and transform research, education and practice in dentistry and the oral and craniofacial health sciences.
