The Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Ludovika University of Public Service (UPS) in Budapest, Hungary.

The MOU formalizes the relationship between the two schools and will facilitate collaboration among the respective faculties and student bodies.

“We are delighted to form this new partnership with the Ludovika University of Public Service, which already has resulted in a visiting faculty lecture there,” said Mark J. Rozell, dean of the Schar School. “We anticipate many more intellectual exchanges among our respective faculties and students.”

In May, Schar School adjunct professor Charles N.W. Keckler, a former deputy assistant secretary at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, presented a lecture at UPS entitled “Adventures in Good Government” in which he detailed the process and expectations of government reforms.

Ludovika UPS was founded in 2012. The school’s 6,200 students are enrolled in undergraduate and graduate degree programs focusing on public administration, law enforcement, and military affairs.
