In January 2007, the University of Rome Sapienza University is committed, through the enactment of the Charter and the principles of the Declaration of the mission, to forge links with international bodies and national cooperation, serving as a "University of the Millennium". This is one of the results of a working group set up by the University Council of International Relations, which has recognized the strategic importance of international cooperation for development, understood as the principal form of international relations, in virtue of the ethical and political commitments made by the international community for the reduction of inequalities and for the prevention and resolution of conflicts. Within this overall framework, we analyzed in the essay the activity of the High Level Course on the Millennium Development Goals, with particular attention to the third edition of the courses taken as the final result, an analysis report on a cooperation project between UN-HABITAT and Homa Bay, a small town on the Kenyan shores of Lake Victoria. The report was prepared by an interdisciplinary team of young professionals (Millennium University Studio Team) who, after following the course MDGs, conducted a reality studio for fifteen days in the town of Homa Bay. It is oriented to the analysis of the project LVWATSAN (Lake Victoria Water and Sanitation Programme). This paper analyzes the results of the report and identifies the role of the MUST team and the role of the university Sapienza within a specific project of international cooperation, proposing an open debate on the ranking of Italian universities at a time of economic crisis and cuts the funds of international cooperation.
