RENAISSANCE VOL. 2 NO. 6
The collaboration between the Office of the Vice-Chancellor and the Centre for Communication Studies (CCS) of The University of Guyana brings to you this Volume 2: No. 6 edition of Renaissance, a monthly newsletter. Renaissance is the Vice-Chancellor’s medium of sharing with you our University’s developments.
In the month of September the University was involved in many activities. Through the Office of PACE (Philanthrophy, Alumni and Civic Engagement) we hosted another successful and well attended Turkeyen and Tain Talks which focused on Constitutional Reform in Guyana. The Office of PIE (Planning and International Engagement) hosted the Vice-Chancellor’s Renaissance Lecture III, with featured speaker Sir George Alleyne, Director Emeritus, Pan American Health Organization.
In this edition take pleasure in viewing pictures from a number of Town Hall meetings, both at Turkeyen and Tain Campuses, and appreciation dinners for staff and Sir George Alleyne. Our University’s alumni and friends in New York recently held their Inaugural Renaissance Gala. We hope you enjoy these and other scenes from the Guyana Cultural Association’s Folk Festival, Family Fun Day and Kwe Kwe Night.
Additionally, the Minister of Public Telecommunications, Honourable Catherine Hughes, has been a faithful friend to UG. Through Minister Hughes’ intervention the University will benefit from the promise of broadcast licenses and the donation of 278 chairs. The Centre for Communication Studies is particularly ecstatic about the promise of broadcast licenses for both radio and television and would like to thank Minister Hughes for her tremendous support and Professor Paloma Mohamed, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (PACE), for facilitating this venture. Certainly our students and the wider University community will be better positioned to serve the needs of our fellow Guyanese.
As you read, be inspired to join us as we celebrate UG’s Renaissance!
