Renaissance Vol. 1 No. 3
Thee collaboration between the Office of the Vice-Chancellor and the Centre for Communication Studies (CCS) of The University of Guyana brings to you this third edition of Renaissance, a monthly newsletter. Renaissance is the Vice-Chancellor’s medium of sharing with you our University’s developments.
In this edition of Renaissance, we hope you feel as proud of our graduates’ and lecturers’ achievements as we do. The University of Guyana (UG) participated in this year’s 13th Annual CANQATE Conference, which consisted of three days of seminars, panel discussions, and cultural activities. The conference covered a wide spectrum of quality assurance matters related to the issues of sustainability and development in the Caribbean region.
Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences, Dr Emanuel Cummings, and Medical Director, Dr Ronald Aaron, participated in the Beyond Flexner Conference in Miami, Florida. Equally impressive is Dean of the Faculty of Natural Sciences, Mr Calvin Bernard’s participation in the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in Johannesburg, South Africa.
As Guyana celebrates its 50th year of Independence, it is quite fitting the country’s most prestigious, tertiary institution celebrates its 50th Anniversary Convocation exercise. This year’s graduation exercise is scheduled to be very special, with the feature address being delivered by Dr Vincent Adams, Guyanese born, engineering giant working in the US Department of Energy.
All these stories and more are creations of our CCS student interns attached to the publication. CCS is involved in training students in the art of print, radio, television and online journalism; public relations; communication research, and consultancy.
As you read, be inspired to join us as we celebrate UG’s Renaissance!
