On Tuesday, May 1, Ohio University and Guyana officials will gather to showcase a partnership between Ohio University’s Scripps College of Communication and University of Guyana’s Center for Communication Studies.
Guyana's ambassador to the United States, Mr. Bayney Karran, Esq., and the director of the University of Guyana’s Center for Communication Studies, Dr. Paloma Mohamed, will be on campus to express appreciation on behalf of the Government of Guyana and the University of Guyana.
During “The Guyana Experience 2008-2011” Ohio University’s Scripps College of Communication faculty and staff worked to upgrade the University of Guyana’s communication curriculum and course content. It also advanced the education and experience of faculty through master’s degrees and professional workshops and worked to upgrade the education and skills of Guyanese journalists and media professionals.
The United States Agency for International Development-funded project has been declared a success by USAID and the Higher Education for Development—the Washington, D.C. coordinating agency.
The event will begin at 10 a.m. in Baker University Center's Theater and will provide an opportunity to thank members of the university community for their contributions to the project, to showcase those individuals who contributed to its success and to provide them with an opportunity to reflect on their experiences in Guyana.
From 1 - 3 p.m. screenings of videos from "The Guyana Experience 2008-2011" will take place at the Athena Cinema on Court Street in Athens.
All events are free and open to the public.
