Renaissance Vol. 2 No. 1 & 2

27th February, 2017 0 comments

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: Nos. 1 and 2 editions of Renaissance, a monthly newsletter. Renaissance is the Vice-Chancellor’s medium of sharing with you our University’s developments. 

In this edition we acknowledge the re-opening of the University for Academic Year 2016/2017 Semester II. As we approach the end of the h week of classes we hope students are settled and in full working stride, to have a productive and successful semester. 

Some of the new developments at UG include: an MOU signed with London South Bank University; a contract with the Ministry of Public Security’s Citizen Security Strengthening Programme and the Inaugural Diaspora Engagement Conference to be held in Guyana.

Earlier this year a number of UG students and a few staff were affected by an apartment fire. We commend the University’s administration for their support to those affected. 

The Renaissance team had an opportunity to profile visiting Professor David Phoenix, Vice-Chancellor of the London South Bank University and Dr Penny Sibert, Guyanese Fellow at Nottingham University. We hope you enjoy reading their stories. 

Additionally, in February all Faculties participated in UG’s Open Career Day, showcasing students’ work, existing programs and new programs envisioned for the future. We thank all those hard working and dedicated staff and volunteer students for long hours spent in preparation for thousands of people who visited Turkeyen Campus on Career Day. 

As you read, be inspired to join us as we celebrate UG’s Renaissance
